Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Welcome Back Sharks!

As we settle back into our routine I am trilled to be planning thematic units for the rest of the year which will include rotating classrooms! In January we are going to make cross curricular connections using snow as our main topic. In order to make the most out of these engaging lessons I would like you to spend some time going over second grade expectations with your scholar. In second grade, we talk heavily about student responsibility and we need your help to check in with them at home! Here's to a spectacular 2019! I cannot wait to see where our learning will take us this year!

-Love Mrs. Weber

Better Way

by: Big Block Singsong

Well the other day, I met someone on my way He was rough and rude and trying to be unkindI could tell something was wrong, and he was trying to pass it on But instead I smiled and said, "What's on your Mind"?
Come on, let's just talk it out What you're down about‘Cuz taking a frown and passing it roundIt won't solve a thing, (won't solve a thing)But If I count you in and let you know that you've got friends Maybe we'll find a better way to work it through (work it through)(Here we go...) We've all had bad days, (bad days) where it never goes our way (no way)Whether we're lonely, sad, or maybe just left out (hey man. hey man. No doubt) Sometimes we send frustrations, (hey-hey) into the wrong locations (wrong way) But a friendly invitation might help out
We're all looking at each other, like we're looking at a book cover You've got to look inside to read what's going on
So Come on! Let's just talk it outWhat you're down about‘Cuz taking a frown and passing it round It won't solve a thing, (won't solve a thing) But If I count you in and let you know that you've got friendsMaybe we'll find a better way to work it through (work it through) Can we count you in?

Put a little love in your heart

by: Jackie DeShannon

Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping handPut a little love in your heartYou see it's getting late, oh please don't hesitatePut a little love in your heart
And the world (oh oh oh oh) will be a better placeAnd the world (oh oh oh oh) will be a better placeFor you, and me, you just wait, and you’ll seePut a little love in your heart.
Another day goes by, and still the children cryPut a little love in your heartIf you want the world to know, we won't let hatred growPut a little love in your heart
And the world (oh oh oh oh) will be a better placeAnd the world (oh oh oh oh) will be a better placeFor you and me, you just wait and seePut a little love in your heart.

Meet Mrs. Weber

This is my fourth year at Shell Beach Elementary and I can truly say that I have bought into the Shell Beach culture: hook, line, and sinker! I live for the days when I get to inspire students right alongside the breathtaking views of the ocean. In my opinion, room 3 has the best window for whale watching (your students are going to be spoiled)! This is my second year teaching 2nd grade and I am thrilled to be your student's teacher. I am passionate about creating kind, mindful, independent students who take pride in their learning! I know we are going to have a phenomenal year! We are a team and together we can help your student achieve their full potential (I welcome and cherish an open line of communication). It is truly awe inspiring to see children grasp new concepts for the first time. I live for those moments with students. Let's start creating those FINtastic moments together!

My Teaching Philosophy: I believe teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in all of my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is an insatiable need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are enthusiastic about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a substantial education, but to interact with someone who is innately aware of and is sensitive to their individual needs. I am one of those individuals, and I will always strive to be the best educator that I can possibly be.

Fun Facts About Me: I am a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, go Gauchos! While at UCSB I received an English degree with an emphasis in literature and the environment and a minor in applied psychology. I received my teaching credential from Cal Poly (I am biased but I think it is the best program out there)! I am originally from Roseville, California, but I claim San Luis Obispo as my second home; for every couple of months while growing up I would come and visit my grandparents who lived here for over fifty years. I met my husband working at Trader Joe's (who doesn't love TJs?) and we love to play pinball and watch the SF Giants in our free time. I collect hair bows and love decorating my room with as many sharks as possible!

Wish List: I have everything that your student needs to be successful to start their second grade year! If you are feeling generous a classroom donation would be much appreciated! Throughout the year I would love to receive: *Black Expo Markers *Glue Sticks
