  • Improving Fluency

    msadg Need a fun way to help your child improve their oral fluency? Use the free app ChatterKids or Chatterpix. Have your child record themselves reading then listen to how they sound. Ask them how they can improve and then have them try it again.

  • Project Based Learning

    Posted by Dawn Vogel on 10/18/2019

    We kicked off our Project Based Learning (PBL) today. Students will have independent roles, based on their interests, to complete in a group as they work toward their final product.

    We are trying to develop a way to share information and skills with other students and the community. Students are leading the way through the entire project and will be using literacy, math and science skills.

    An exhibition night is planned for Thursday, Dec. 12th. More information will be sent home as we approach the night of our Big Reveal.

    Watch the videos below for more information on what PBL is and how it helps students learn in an authentic and relevant manner.

  • Welcome to Second Grade

    Hi! I'm Mrs. Vogel and I'll be your child's Balanced Literacy (Reading, Writing & Social Studies) teacher this year.

    This is my 12th year teaching and my 8th in Second Grade. I was a journalist/photographer in my early life then stayed home to raise my kids. I was certified in 2008 and began teaching 4th grade at Willow Creek Elementary in Kingwood. I opened ASE as a fourth-grade teacher.

    I'm a Texan by transplant having moved to Texas in 2007. I was born and raised in Illinois and have been married to my husband Ken for 27 years.

    Ken and I have two sons and are about to have our first daughter (in-law). Garrett graduated from A&M in May and moved to Midland. He and his fiancee Meghan are getting married in October. (Insert happy tears) Andrew graduated from KHS and is headed to University of Arizona in a week. (insert sad tears)

    I'm excited about the new year, the new curriculum and meeting your child. Please bookmark this webpage - I will update it weekly with relevant information.

    Welcome to ASE, welcome to Second Grade and welcome to the class!


    Mrs. Vogel
