WELCOME to 2C
Welcome! My name is Sarah Coulter and I am excited to start the school year and to be your child’s second grade teacher. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Eastern Illinois University. I am originally form Charleston, Il and moved to Fisher when I married my husband, Seth Coulter. I have spent the past 15 years working with students both in and outside of the classroom in the surrounding school districts. This will be my first year as a fulltime classroom teacher at Fisher Grade School, teaching 2rd grade.
When not in the classroom you may find me out in the community volunteering at one of my kid’s activities, or spending time outdoors with family. I have two children, Ryan is a 7th grader and Emily is a 4th grader at Fisher. We call Fisher home and I feel very excited and blessed to start my career at Fisher.
I can’t wait to get to learn "S'More" about all of my new students and families throughout the school year. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns.

We will be learning about main ideas, sequencing, characters, and setting. The children will be learning new vocabulary words and focussing on looking for details. We will also be reading non fiction books. Reading 20 minutes a night is very helpful. Book it can also be included with this reading. Please continue reading for AR every night and take at least 2 or 3 tests a week. I will be passing out Bug Bucks every Friday!
Grammer and Writing:
We are learning about subjects, predicates, nouns and verbs in sentences. We are learning how to write complete sentences and punctuation marks. We will soon be learning how to write paragraphs.
Each week we will be focussing on a phonics rule. Please studing spelling words throughout the week. We will have a spelling test every Friday.
We have a new math series: Go Math! We will be concentrating on the Common Core. The first 2 chapters are focussing on learning how to read and write numbers to 1000. We are also working on our addition facts with Rocket math. We have 1 1/2 minutes timed tests. Our goal is to master all the addition and subtraction facts to 18 by the end of the year!
