Welcome to Lake Mills and Mrs. Brackey’s 2nd Grade Classroom!
             I received my teacher training from Iowa State University and Buena Vista.  I have been teaching for 25 years with most of those years in second grade.  I have 3 children who have all graduated from Lake Mills.  One is currently enrolled at UNI and the other two have graduated from UNI and NIACC.  I live on an acreage one mile north of Joice and have lived in the area all my life.  In fact, I was a second grade student in the exact classroom that I am teaching in now!  
           * Second grade takes a spelling test every Friday.  Spelling words are sent home the Friday before in a newsletter called Mrs. Brackey’s Weekly News.  Spelling words follow a phonics pattern for the week with the 6th week of each theme based on high frequency words.
           * Homework is handed out every Friday and due back the following Friday.  However, students that turn it in on the following Monday get a responsibility point for being responsible.  The reading homework is intended for the student to read aloud to someone and answer questions about their reading.
          *  Report cards are given 4 times a year and parent teacher conferences are held 3 times a year.  Behavior notes may be sent home at any time. Any and all support at home is appreciated.   
*In my classroom I focus on what I call “Words to Live by:” 
·          Your job at school is to learn!
·         Treat others the way you want to be treated.
·          Learn from your mistakes.
·         Respect:  classmates, teachers, yourself,  and this school.
·         If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
I am looking forward to a great year full of fun and learning!   - Mrs. Brackey
