Life in Seussey Second

Soaring to greatness by thinking great thinks!

Seussville Review 2015-2016!

May18

Dear Families;

I give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall.  I give them back, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they were then.  Although they would have attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day.  I give them back reluctantly, for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a classroom, we have grown and we shall always retain a little bit of each other.

Ten years from now if we met on the street, your child and I, a light will shine to our eyes, a smile to our face, and we shall feel the bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today.  We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year.  I wish it could go on indefinitely, but give them back I must.  Remember that I shall always be interested in your child and their destiny, wherever they go, whatever they do, whoever they become.  Their joys and sorrows I’ll always be happy to share.

Thanks for your support and all that you have done to make our year complete! Check out our year as a Seussville citizen in our video below.  Here’s to a successful year of learning and for the many more successful years to come.  Remember Dr. Seuss says, “Don’t cry because it’s over.  Smile because it happened!”

What was your favorite part of second grade?  What did you enjoy learning the most?  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below!

Seussified Birthday Celebration!

February26

Seussville was all a flutter this morning to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss!  We started off by wearing mismatched clothes and wacky socks to school and having breakfast.  We gobbled up green eggs and ham, doughnuts, Fruit Loops and orange juice. (Thanks Mr. Pitzer for waking up at 4:30am to make us green scrambled eggs, and Mrs., Kamin and Officer Butterfield for visiting us!)

After our bellies were full of yummies, we listened to the Cat in the Hat.  We learned that Dr. Seuss wrote this book based on a list of high frequency words that young children would know.  We then shared all the rhyming words we heard and turned them into a poem of our own.  We tried to rhyme as many words as we could and some of us even made up words just like Dr. Seuss. Check out some of our writing:

Next it was time to gear up our creative juices and create our own Cat in the Hats.  The trick was we couldn’t use scissors or pencils.  We could only tear the paper.  It made from some very “Seussey” cats.

Then it was time to snuggle up with some of our favorite Seuss books either with a friend or on our own.  We ended the day watching Horton Hears a Who!  What a “Seussey” day for sure.  Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Thank you for all your wonderful, silly and wacky books!

Seussville in Review!

May27

Dear Students;

It is hard to believe the second grade is quickly coming to an end.  We have learned so much and have had an absolute blast in the process.  I am so very proud of each and every single one of you for all your hard work, dedication, creativity, progress and suessey-ness.  As you take your next step in your elementary school journey, know that I am always right down the hall and I look forward to watching all the wonderful things that will happen to you!  Also know that no matter where your journey takes you, I will always be excited to hear from you.  You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes and you can steer yourself any direction you choose!  Show your third grade teachers all the amazing things I was able to see this year, be a good friend and an excellent listener.  This summer make sure to play, relax and keep on reading!  I just know that you will.  I will never forget you and just know that YOU ARE going places. Today is your day! You’re off and away!

Dear Parents;

I give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall.  I give them back, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they were then.  Although they would have attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day.  I give them back reluctantly, for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a classroom, we have grown and we shall always retain a little bit of each other.

 After we made the cats, we wrote poems to go with them.  We tried to rhyme as many words as we could and some of us even made up words just like Dr. Seuss. Check out some of our poems below!

Since it was Read the Most from Coast to Coast, we all snuggled up with some of our favorite Seuss books in the gym and ended the day watching Horton Hears a Who!  What a “Seussey” day for sure.  Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Thank you for all your wonderful, silly and wacky books!
