Grade 2 - Ms. Jacques


Welcome to Second Grade!!

My name is Nicole Jacques and this is my 5th year teaching 2nd grade at St. Christopher School. I graduated from Keene State College in 2009 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and Sociology. I earned my M.Ed in Literacy and Language Learning from Lesley University and am currently working towards a Reading Specialist license.  Prior to working at St. Chris, I worked in the Salem public school district as a Title I Reading Teacher. In addition to teaching, I am also a part-time swim instructor.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love reading and being around the water.

Back to School - September News

Welcome back to school!

Our first few days of school went well and your children are quickly adjusting to being back in the school routine, as am I.

Below you will find the Specials Schedule for 2J:

Monday - PE 11:40-12:20

Tuesday - Music 9:20-10:00

Wednesday - Computers/Library 1:40-3:00

Thursday - Art 9:00-10:00, Spanish 1:20-2:00

Second graders are now responsible for keeping a Student Planner. They are in charge of writing their homework in it each day. They need to bring their Student Planner and HOME folder home with them each afternoon and then bring it back the very next day.

In 2nd grade, students are expected to use IXL and Xtramath at home often. There will be timed tests each week on basic math facts. Xtramath is a great resource to improve on speed and automaticity. A letter went home with an access code for Xtramath. Even if your child used Xtramath last year, please log in with the access code highlighted on your letter, this will link your child's account to my class account so I can see how he/she is doing.

The month of September will be spent setting the daily routines and expectations in our classroom. Students are learning the Daily 5 routines and quickly building their stamina in both reading and writing. We are currently working on "Read to Self" and "Work on Writing." Our next Daily 5 choice will be "Read to Someone," which is always a big hit!

We will also be gradually introducing each subject this month, starting with Math and Religion. And, our FIRST spelling test of the year will be Friday, September 15th. This spelling test is a sight word review.

I update my class page at least once a month. Please check back for updates, topics we will cover in class each month, pictures, and congratulations. Also, feel free to email me anytime with questions or concerns.

I look forward to a great year!
