Organizing Together &
Teaching Everyday Responsibility
...everything you need to know...
This year in 2nd grade, your child will be given a very special OTTER. They are to bring their OTTER to school every single day and take it home each night.
The OTTER will be a tool to help your child learn the important skill of organization and will be a communication device between home and school.
Your child's OTTER has several important features. There are two pockets. One is marked "HOMEWORK" and is the first thing you will see inside of your child's OTTER. This is where all homework (both homework coming home AND homework going back to school) will be placed. This will help your child know exactly where to find their work and will help me quickly locate it each morning when I check everyone's OTTER.
The next thing you will find inside your OTTER is your OTTER’s "POUCH." The Otter Pouch is a green zip-close pencil bag where you can send important things to school! Please send all permission slips, lunch money, bus notes, book orders, or other important items in this zip-close pencil bag. Your OTTER will help them get to school safely!
Next, you will find... OTTER rules in a clear sheet protector.
Finally, you will find their Friday pocket filled with all of their good work for the week. Please take some time to sit down with your child and "oooh" and "aaaah" over their work. When you have finished, you may keep their work and sign the siguature sheet. Your OTTER is ready to come back to school on Monday!
