Mrs. Dwire

Ms, Hart

Hello, my name is Mrs.. Alison Dwire. I was born in Florida and was lucky enough to grow up in Concord, North Carolina. Two passions of mine are: animals and helping students learn.I am proud to be a member of the Woodrow Wilson Family. I have been at Woodrow Wilson Since 2013. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education K-6.

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
I believe that everyday we learn something new; it may not be the same way. Together if we work as a school, teacher, student, and parent team we will help students grow to their full potential.

Welcome to Second Grade!!!

Please make sure your child is reading nightly. It is very important that students read at least 20 minutes each day. After your child finishes reading, ask some of these questions: Where did the story happen? Who were the main characters in the story? What was the main idea of the story?

This quarter we will be working on:

ELA: We will be working on identifying the parts of a poem that help us to understand the meaning of it. We will also be working on identifying the different points of view of characters in a story. We will begin identifying the main idea of a paragraph or passage using details to support our reasons. We will also be comparing two different passages on the same topic and describe how the author supports this reason.

Please try to integrate written comprehension questions with your child nightly. Check their notebook for written comprehension question stems.

In writing, we will begin writing paragraphs to explain information learned from a given topic.

MATH: We will start to focus skip counting into the hundreds and continue to work on telling time to the 5 minutes. We will continue to work on adding number strings and three digit numbers (along with subtraction). We will also work on graphing data and solving 2 step word problems.

SCIENCE:  We will be working on weather in our classroom.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will learn about maps, how they are created, and the importance of them. We will also begin to learn about how environments affect our living.
