Welcome to Second Grade
We are so exited to meet all our 2nd graders in person in the Fall! Second grade is such a wonderful year of learning and growth! We will go on reading adventures that include both fiction and nonfiction books and become experts on the characters in books we read. We will become programmers using Scratch and Lego robots,mathematicians who use problem solving skills and scientists studying life cycles and the world around us.
Here is the link to our 2nd grade supply list. Supply List
We wanted to include it now so that you can gather materials as those summer specials pop up. It’s a great idea to have some supplies on hand at home to set up a homework station for your child (crayons, gluestick, scissors, pencils). We use many of the supplies as “community supplies” and collect some items to use throughout the year. Please make sure your child brings in a personal pencil box to keep them organized at their desk.
To make sure that your child is well prepared, please practice addition and subtraction facts with your child and READ, WRITE and READ some more! Building reading and writing stamina is a big goal for second graders! They will grow ot read 25-30 minutes indepently!
We aree so looking forward to our year together IN PERSON and have a lot of fun things planned for our kiddos this year! The first day of school is Thursday, August 26. Have a wonderful summer!
