Bible:
Fill in the blank: Exodus 19:5 So now obey me and keep my agreement.
Do this, and you will be my own possession, chosen from all nations.
Even though the whole earth is mine,
Moses was a leader who showed diligence as he led the children of Israel into the
desert or wilderness.
Diligence means not giving up.
Moses followed God’s direction and turned bitter water into water safe to drink.
The Israelites complained, and God sent a bread called manna to feed the people
in the wilderness.
God instructed His children to gather only certain amounts of food. He provided
the manna and was testing the obedience of His people.
After more complaining, God told Moses to take his walking stick and strike a rock
so water would come out of it.
God spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and gave the children of Israel the Ten
Commandments.
God gave the Ten Commandments to guide people in how to recognize right from
wrong and to know how to live well.
The first four commandments direct us to love God.
The last six commandments direct us to love others.
God instructed Moses to make a bronze snake and lift it up on a pole.
When the children of Israel looked at the snake, they would live and not die from
snakebites.
God wants us to have courage as Moses had.
Courage means doing the right thing even when afraid.
Short Answer: Write about a life experience when you asked God for courage.

Parent Letter

Welcome to Mrs. Becca Dorn’s second grade class. I am very excited to start this school year with you.
Second grade is my favorite grade to teach, and I am thrilled God has allowed me to teach here at First
Baptist.
I want to begin by telling you a little bit about myself. My husband Daniel and I have been married for 24
years and he works for Sparrows Crane Co. We have 5 children. Izzy is 29-we adopted her at 16, she lives
in the McNeil, MS area. Dawson is 23-he is married to Savannah and they are expecting our first
grandchild in October of this year. They are both in the United States Navy and are stationed in Whidbey
Island, Washington. Logan is 22-he is married to Kaitlin and will graduate USM this December, then he
will go to Seminary to be a youth Minister. Gabi is 19-she graduated in May and is attending Pearl River
Community College, where she is on the dance team, String of Pearls. Piper is 17 and just started her
senior year at Picayune Memorial High School and she is a model for Jesus Photography. We have 3
dogs, 12 chickens and an outside kitty.
I wanted to be a mom and teacher ever since I was a little girl. I worked for the Picayune School District
as a paraprofessional for 5 years. I taught Phonics and loved my job. Then Covid hit. I chose to leave my
positon because I only have one functioning lung due to Lung Cancer-BUT GOD! I am in remission!!!
Last fall, I decided I wanted to get out of the house and be with students again. Logan and Kaitlin were
both teaching here at FBCS and said there was a need for subs. They kept me busy! Then in January, I
was blessed with a long term position in English for the High School here. I was a bit sad I wasn’t coming
back this fall-BUT GOD!!! They were in need of a second grade teacher and I said yes, I knew this was
where I was supposed to be.
This year, I am excited to share your child with you. His/her relationship with God and academic
learning are at my heart and I think we will have a wonderful year as we all work together!
The following will give you an idea of how our classroom will run:
Rules: 1. Follow Directions Quickly!
2. Raise your hand for permission to speak.
3. Raise your hand for permission to leave your seat.
4. Make smart choice.
5. Keep your dear Teacher Happy!
Behavior: We will use a behavior chart in our classroom to determine weekly conduct grades. Each day
will be worth 20 points for a 100 point conduct grade each week. The students will begin each morning
in the middle of the chart “ready for school”. Throughout the day, the students will have the
opportunity to work up the chart for following the rules and for displaying outstanding behavior. The
students will move down the chart if a rule is broken. Once a student has moved down, that does not

mean he/she is stuck in that spot; he/she will have the rest of the day to move his/her clip back up.
Students’ conduct points will be determined by the space they are on when they leave for the day.
The behavior chart will be set up as follows:
Purple 2 Stickers + the daily 20 points
Blue 1 Sticker + the daily 20 Points
Green 20 points
Yellow 15 points
Orange 10 points
Red 5 points
Rewards: Students will receive stickers for exceptional behavior through the day as well as a sticker for
each time he/she moves up on our chart. 15 stickers can be turned in for a treasure box treat.
Folders: Your child will have 6 folders that he/she is responsible to bring to class and home from school
every day. Please check these folders nightly for unfinished work.

1. red-Take Home Folder
2. purple-Bible
3. green- Spelling and Cursive
4. yellow-Science and Social Studies
5. blue-Language and Math
6. orange-Reading

Snack: Please send a healthy snack with your child every day. We will have a snack in morning and a
working snack in the afternoon. Candy will not be allowed at snack time. Please send a clear, water-filled
bottle labeled with your child’s name for hydration through the day. If something other than water is in
the water bottle, we will have to pour it out and fill with water from the water fountain.
Birthdays: Everyone loves to celebrate his/her birthday. Please feel free to send in a celebration snack
for your child. If you are planning to invite classroom friends to a birthday party, please send enough
invitations for every child in the class. I can only hand out invitations if everyone in the class is invited.
Phonics: In second grade, we will no longer have a separate phonics grade. All phonics will be
incorporated into our reading, language and spelling curriculum.
Grading: You will have access to your child’s grades on Headmaster. I will update grades by Monday
mornings for the previous week’s grades. Graded papers will then come home Monday afternoon for
your review. Please sign the log and return the log and the papers on Tuesday. I will collect all papers on
Tuesday.

Homework: Homework will be: handwriting practice, completing unfinished classwork, studying each
night (Bible verses, spelling words, math facts, etc) and reading an AR book at least 20 minutes each
night. Any projects sent home will be given at least one week in advance. My website will be updated
by Friday, so you will be aware of the next week’s upcoming assignments. Please do not work ahead on
any assignments, but if your child is absent, he/she is responsible for the work missed while out.
Website: Please visit our school website weekly: www.fbcseagles.com This website will give you
information about school and classroom activities. I will have my page updated every Friday afternoon
for the next week’s announcements, assignments, test schedule, special dates, etc.
Communication: I ask that you provide me with your email address so that I can contact you throughout
the year. I send out a weekly email every Monday morning that contains the week’s announcements,
classroom updates and most importantly study guides. Please feel free to contact me about any concern
or question you may have. The most direct way to contact me is through email:
[email protected] I will check email before school, during my planning period and after
school. If you need something sooner, please feel free to call the school office at 985-643-3725.
I am looking forward to this school year with you and your child. If there is anything I can do this year to
help you or your family, please let me know. I will be praying for my students and their families as we go
through the next step of their lives—Second Grade!
