Happy Fall to all!!!  2nd graders are learning about fall and all of the great things it brings along with it.  We have spent a lot of time learning about apples, painting apples and tasting apples.  We took data from our apple tasting and made a bar graph.  Macintosh apples won!  
We had fun dying shirts pink for breast cancer awareness month!  Please have your child wear them for our field trip on October 15th.
In social studies we have been learning about community.  We visited the police station and borough hall and we will be visiting the fire house and Fantasy Island as well.  As always if you have any questions or concerns please email me.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to all of my students and parents!  September has gotten off to a great start!  The kids are learning about their new environment and how it works here in 2nd grade.  If you have not already done so, please sign up for the remind app.  This will be our major form of communication between myself and parents.  I hope to see you all at back to school night on September 18th.

Flashlight Friday- Reading is a very important part of 2nd grade, the kids seemed to really enjoy Fridays because they get to read with flashlights!!!!
