Summer Resources

Summer Resources!

Summer is a great time to encourage your student to dive deeper 
into content they love! We have created an Online Resources Padlet 
to give some resources for students to explore! See HERE for a 
guide on how to use padlet!
You and your family will have free EPIC reading use until June 30th. 
After that, you will be prompted to pay a monthly subscription. 
For free options, check out the padlet (link above)!
If any passwords/logins are required, they are on the activity or
they are your students previous login!
There are also resources for the DINO lovers, the scientists, 
the historians, the mathematicians, and every student in between!
Our resources were gathered by coaches (shout out to Mrs. Elliot, 
Ms. Sirois, and Mrs. Lawrence!), staff (hey-yo Ms. Dee!!!), and your 
2nd grade teachers (Ms. Richards, Mrs. Southard, Mrs. Lyons, and 
Ms. Sissel).You can send us emails by clicking on the teacher's name 
above but responses may be delayed during summer months! 

We wish you and your family a happy, safe, and healthy summer!

Internet Safety Tips!

Have you wondered how long your child should be using technology in a day?  Are you worried about keeping your child safe on the internet?  Here are some tips from the Second Grade team!

5 Healthy Media Habits to Teach our Children!

1. Set limits on the amount of time as well as the apps and videos your child is watching.

2. Check ratings and make sure all apps and videos are age-appropriate.

3. Turn off all screens at least an hour before bed!  And create "tech-free" zones, like mealtimes.

4. Ask questions about kids' favorite games, shows, and characters.  Discuss ideas and issues they read about or learn about through TV and video games.

5. Walk the walk--Be a good role model for your child!

Cooking Classes

In Second Grade, students have been participating in weekly cooking classes with Cultivating Community.  All classes have been learning about where our food comes from, vitamins and minerals and how they keep us healthy, and how to prepare tasty meals!  We have made a variety of healthy recipes, from kale salad to blueberry smoothies, and tabouli.  These lessons add onto what we learned in our fall gardening classes and will set the foundation for what we will learn about the Riverton community garden in the spring.  What a wonderful addition Cultivating Community has been to our science curriculum!
