2nd Grade - Ms. Kelly Dickinson

Welcome to Room 9!

All About Miss Dickinson:

I am overjoyed to be teaching your students this year.  One of my favorite parts about teaching 2nd grade is the children's enthusiasm for learning.

I am a San Mateo native.  I attended school at Sunnybrae, Borel, and Aragon High School.  I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal and Civic Studies, a minor in performing arts with an emphasis in dance, a California Teaching Credential, and a Master of Arts in Teaching in 2013. 

This is my fifth year of teaching!  I am so lucky to be at Beresford.  I love the school community and cannot imagine working anywhere else.  

Outside of school, I am  either teaching dance classes, taking classes at the gym, or watching soccer games.  I love spending time with my family and friends.


December Newsletter

Dear Room 9 families,
As the holidays are approaching, I know this can be a very busy time of year.  Please make sure your child is still getting a good night’s sleep so they can be at their best each day!

Here is what we are currently working on:

Thematic Unit of Study: Plants and Animals

Benchmark Advance: Unit 3- Plants and Animals in their habitat

Reading: We are working on identifying the main idea of a text based on the key details and text features.

Writing:  We will be writing an Animal Report.  Students will choose an animal, gather information about the animal from books, and write a five paragraph essay about their animal.

Envision Math: Topic 8 - Adding Two-Digit Numbers

LIFESKILLS of the month are Active Listening, Cooperation, and Patience.  Please talk with your students about how to live these LIFESKILLS everyday.

Winter break approaches and students will be out of school for two weeks, so I have three requests:

1) Read every day

2) Write about fun experiences of break

3) Have a great time with family and friends!
Happy Holidays!

Miss Dickinson
