Welcome to my classroom for the the 2018-2019 school year. 

I know we will learn many new and exciting things!  I love teaching second grade! Before teaching second grade, I taught 4th grade for 16 years at Sabillasville Elementary School.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Mount St. Mary's University.  I also have a Masters degree of Curriculum and Instruction from Hood College.  My husband, son, and I enjoy camping, baseball, and going to the beach! 

Homework:  Second grade students have homework each night Monday thru Thursday.  They will have reading, word study and math facts/practice.
 
Math homework:  Students will practice their math facts each  night.  Students have the math facts in a binder with activities and games to complete.  Please return the folder with the math facts daily. The students and I use these every day as part of our instruction.  

Language Arts homework:  Students will have books or text to read each night.  They are in a baggie with helpful questions to ask about their reading.  The bag also contains a reading check sheet.  Please help your student write down the name of the book/text they are reading.  Please sign the sheet verifyinig that you and your student have read their homework.  The baggie book and papers need to be returned every day to school.  The students and I use these materials every day during reading group.

Homework:  Students will  also have homework with word study/spelling, math work, and special projects throughout the year.  Please look at the homework notebook for further directions.

 I am looking forward to working with your child and family.  Please contact me if you need anything. 240-236-6000 or tonya.wantz@fcps.org
