    We will play, learn, and grow together!


    Mrs. Hocking                                  K-2 Resource


    We are beginning to introduce our reading, writing, math, and word work units in class.  Your child is beginning to become accustomed to our classroom routines and procedures as well as meeting and making new friends.  If you have any questions/concerns, please be sure to contact me at hocking@oaklandschoolsnj.org. Please leave your preferred contact method, and I will get right back to you!  

    We are currently reinforcing and practicing the skills of keeping our hands to ourselves, whole body listening, and being a good friend. We use a growth mindet and are practcing the attitude of not giving up and the power of yet! Please talk about and review these topics at home with your child.  We are reading stories, watching videos, and talking about how this affects our friends when we do not keep our hands to ourselves, or mind each other's personal space. 

    Homework is being given daily from Monday through Thursday.  My extra help day is Wednesday from 8:30 to 8:50 a.m.  

    **If you notice your child struggling with any of the homework/word work that is sent home, please either send in a note or email me.  I do not expect your child to finish the assignment if it is too hard for your child. I will then work one-on-one with your child to ensure that they are understanding the content. The purpose of homework is extra practice and to reinforce the things taught in class, not to frustrate them!**

    Thank you so much for your support! Please contact me with any questions or concerns about your child!
