Welcome to 2016.  

With the New Year comes some very exciting new activities in Second Grade.

Shortly you will be receiving instructions for some new projects in the new year.

First of all will be our Book Talks.  The children will explore the genres of fiction, biography and nonfiction. They will choose a book from each genre, read it at home and come to school prepared to present their books to their reading classes.

Also, we will be starting a program called "In the Spotlight".  Each week a child will be randomly be chosen to be in the spotlight.  The child will be the special helper for the week, bring in special items to share with the class, will have compliments written about them and will bring a special guest in to share with the class.  This is a well loved activity that is exclusive to second graders.

In addition, in Social Studies, the children will be exploring their cultural heritage.  Using technology in the classroom they will research the country of their family's heritage, create a poster with interesting facts  and perform in a mulitcultual musical program in the spring.

2016 will be an exciting year!!
