Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Ziedonis

I hope your child is enjoying second grade! We have launched reading and writing workshops. In reading, Unit 1 focuses on growing our reading stamina, and strategies to decode new words.In writing, we will begin small moment stories, true stories about ourselves. Help your child recall a time when they had a BIG feeling.  For example, the first time they rode a bike without training wheels, a home run during a baseball game, or building a sandcastle at the beach. 

In math,we have begun Unit 1, Figure The Facts. Click here for the Second Grade Family Welcome Back letter. Here for an indepth look at Unit 1 concepts, and for Math at Home Practice, click here.

In second grade, reading continues to be a very important part of your child’s development as a learner. I believe it is important for all children to enjoy books-whether they read them or someone reads to them. I ask that your child read on a daily basis to deepen their fluency and comprehension skills. Encourage your child to read at home for a minimum of 20 minutes per night.

Birthday Celebrations- If you would like to come in to read a book to the class to celebrate your child’s birthday, please let me know! Thank you! 

Thank you for your support from home, your children are all very excited about beginning another year at OHES!
