    My name is Annette Sakidovitch and I am very excited to begin my sixth year teaching second grade!  I received my teaching degree at the University of Massachusetts and continued to get my masters degree in teaching from Sacred Heart University. I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember!

     

    It's going to be a fantastic year as I anticipate lots of great collaboration among the eight second grade teachers on my team.  If you have any questions or would like to chat, email is the best way to contact me.  I would be glad to give a call back if necessary. 

  • Happy New Year!

    New Class

    I'm excited to start the new school year in a few days!  I'm looking forward to getting to know all of my students and begin to learn the routines, rules, and proceedures of second grade.

     

    I just found out that Friday will be color day and all second graders will be asked to wear red so we can make a rainbow!

  • Horizon Wings

    Second graders were very lucky to have some special guests today.  The friendly people from Horizon Wings brought in some birds of prey for us to learn about.  The highlight of the presentation was the bald eagle.  Students have been studying owls and other birds of prey during their nonfiction book clubs in reading.  A special thank you goes to the KMS PTCA for sponsoring this event.

    I have to say that I feel truly appreciated after the steady flow of gifts last week. My desk was covered with new pencils, flowers, cards, fruit, and candy. Thank you for all of your kind gifts.

    In reading, we are in the middle of our nonfiction book clubs unit.
    Students are working with a group to use everything they know about nonfiction text to study a topic (every group happened to pick an animal) and produce a PowerPoint presentation about it.

  • Telling Time and Counting Money

    Posted by Annette Sakidovitch on 4/17/2017

    This week we begin Chapter 7 in math. This chapter focuses on counting collections of coins and telling time to five minutes. These concepts are best learned when practiced in real life situations. Ask your child to help you count the change needed at the store or to read an analog clock throughout the day.

  • Two-Digit Subtraction

    Posted by Annette Sakidovitch on 3/27/2017

    We are currently two weeks away from our April break! It is my goal to wrap up our current math unit, two-digit subtraction, before we leave for break. Students are practicing regrouping using break aparts, number lines, and the traditional algorithm. Using base ten blocks and/or quick drawings will help students to be able to explain their thinking and understand why the traditional algorithm works.

  • Bigger Books Means Amping Up Reading Power

    Posted by Annette Sakidovitch on 3/6/2017

    In reading, we are beginning our next unit called “Bigger Books Mean Amping Up Reading Power.” In this unit, students will be learning strategies for tackling multi-syllable words while holding on to meaning in longer stories. We will be reading several shorter chapter books in this unit as well as our next long chapter book, The BFG by Roald Dahl.

  • Two-Digit Addition

    Posted by Annette Sakidovitch on 2/13/2017

    This week, we will be finishing up Chapter 4 in math. The chapter focus was on strategies for adding two-digit numbers with and without regrouping. Students practiced multiple ways of adding numbers, including making a ten, finding a tens number and adding using compensation, break-aparts, and traditional regrouping. They also solved word problems using bar models and missing addends. The final few lessons focus on adding two and three 2-digit numbers. The review/practice will be given early next week and it will be scored and sent home with the Chapter 4 workbook to help prepare for the test, to be given in the middle of next week.
