Miss Versteeg in Grade 2

Dear Class,

This is me when I was in Grade 2.  See how happy I was? Going to school made me happy.  It still does.

When you are in Grade 2, there will be some struggle days. These are days when you will think Grade 2 is hard, frustrating, or even boring. There will also be success days. These are days when you will think Grade 2 is interesting, exciting and fun.

I’m going to help you have  success days.  I want Grade 2 to make you happy too.

Your Teacher,

Miss Versteeg

  1. Dear Miss Versteeg and the Team2Eagles,

    I was looking at your blog and I LOVE that your teacher chose to share a picture of herself when she was in grade 2. She really does look happy!

    How was your first week of school? Are you having fun yet???

    • You are the first to comment on our blog this year. That is very, very exciting! We had a wonderful first week. We had Dot day. Have you read ‘The Dot’ by Peter Reynolds. It is a wonderful story!

  2. Hello Team2Eagles,

    I feel very honoured to be the first to comment on your blog! Yes, I have read “The Dot” – I love that story. Another story I love by Peter Reynolds is titled, “ish”. Have you read that story? Here is a link to the story being read aloud if your teacher does not have a copy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpICaczeQ9o

    What connections can make between the stories “The Dot” and “ish”?

    Chat soon!
    Mrs. Cassell
