Happy Last Day!!

This is not how I envisioned our last day ending, but congratulations on finishing 2nd grade! I am so proud of each and everyone of you and can’t wait to see all the great things you do in 3rd grade! Today is the day I will be dropping off your end of the year goody bag – I plan to be stopping by each of your houses between 1 – 4 p.m. Hopefully I will be able to see a lot of you! If not, have a wonderful summer! – Mrs. Hoke

The 2nd grade team wishes you the best of luck!!

Good morning everyone!

It is hard to believe we will be wrapping up our school year next week! This week you will notice that the Remote Learning Opportunities website posted work for not only this week, but also has next week’s work. I have really enjoyed receiving the work that the students have been completing and really appreciate all the work you have been putting into helping your child learn.

Here is a fun video that the Hambright staff put together of our elementary years! A look back into time… https://youtu.be/-DRxx7FAQwg

Also, here is the link for Charlotte’s Web read aloud : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL–rSpcojgu8nuGnjcSbJwr1auqWsnVOE

Hope you are having a good week! – Mrs. Hoke

Tuesday Thoughts

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thank you so much for your continued support, I know teaching your own child isn’t always easy! If you are having difficulties keeping your child motivated, I have an incentive idea. Friday mornings I will hold small group “Fun Friday” where we will just chat and play a few games that I will lead. Please email me if you are interested!

Mid week check in!

Hi everyone!

Just checking in to say hello and to see how everything is going?! I don’t have anything new to share. All of the content for the week can be found on the remote learning webpage and the description of what to turn in to me via email can be found at the top of the webpage.

I hope you are all hanging in there okay. I know the novelity of the “school at home” has probably worn off by now. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all that you have been doing, we really appreciate it. Trust me, I wish we were back in school all together!

As always, please let me know if you have any questions at all! -Mrs. Hoke πŸ™‚

Happy Friday!

I don’t know about all of you, but I sometimes have to sit back and really think about what day of the week it is! Each day is starting to kind of run together, but either way it is Friday and I hope you all have a great weekend! I just wanted to say thank you parents for all of your support at home. I know it isn’t always easy to get your child to complete their work, but I wanted to let you know how much I really appreciate you putting forth the effort so that they can keep on learning! πŸ™‚

A reminder that you can keep up with all of Hambright’s happenings through the school blog: https://hambright.pennmanor.net/blog/ — Please keep sending me ways your child is leaving their MARK at home! (ex: Do the dishes without being asked to, help a sibling clean up their room, etc.)

Our new remote learning activities for next week will be posted here: https://sites.google.com/pennmanor.net/remotelearning/elementary/second-grade

Below is a drawing from Brooks about the water cycle. This is one of the science topics that was covered this past week! I plan on sharing more art work from all of you ( I will ask you before I post anything!) because the work you all are turning in is so impressive!

Have a great weekend! – Mrs. Hoke

Mid-week Reminders!

Hi everyone!

I loved seeing many of you at our virtual class meeting yesterday, it made my entire week! If you were unable to attend, or had any difficulties figuring it out, please reach out to me at jessica.hoke@pennmanor.net – we plan on having another meeting next Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Just a reminder to submit your class work that is required for the week – what you need to submit is listed at the very top of the Remote Learning Opportunities web page. You can simply take a picture from your phone/tablet and e-mail it to me. I LOVE what I have seen so far and appreciate that you are continuing your learning while being at home!

READ ALOUD: Mrs. Adair and I will begin our new chapter book read aloud TODAY! Each day we will be adding a new chapter! Below is the link for our read aloud. Miss I. and I will be finishing up James and the Giant Peach – I will be sending you that soon!

Websites: Here a few great websites that you can use to help practice and strengthen your reading and math skills:

  • Epic – https://www.getepic.com/app/edu-dashboard — great website to explore new books! I have sent you a link to our class account for this, please let me know if you need it again.
  • xtramath.org – you all have your account from this past school year! Please let me know if you can’t remember your username or password. This is a great way to practice basic math facts.
  • happynumbers.com – this is a website to help with math – typically you need a paid membership; however, they are offering their website free for the remainder of the school year!
  • https://www.prodigygame.com/ – another great math website, also offering free membership for the remainder of the school year.

Also, don’t forget to e-mail me with any way your child is leaving their MARK at home! I will be submitting these to Dr. Mealey on Friday! πŸ™‚
