Welcome to Second Grade with Mrs.Higgs,I am excited to be starting my third year in second grade. I have taught many other grade levels and this is definitely my favorite grade level after 27 years of teaching. Second grade is such an exciting time of growing and learning. This year will bring some new challenges and goals with our STEM curriculum. This will provide us with lots of fun, hands on opportunities and problem solving activities. Of course, reading and math are still a main focus in second grade.My classroom expectations are for students to WORK HARD and follow the 3B's, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Be Safe! Weekly homework is required . Homework is used to practice skills learned in class and to promote independence and responsibility.I love to have volunteers in my classroom after the first couple of weeks. So please don't hesitate to let me know if you would like to help out in any way.One think I like to address is Birthdays! We love to celebrate each child's birthday but we need to do it with healthy snacks. So be sure to think ahead about muffins or other healthy treats to celebrate with. Our schools goal is a nutritious diet and lots of exercise.I am looking forward to meeting all of you and partnering in your child's education together. Please contact me anytime. E-mail is the fastest way to communicate.
Sincerely, Sherma Higgs
