Second Grade

Welcome to our SUPER Second Grade!

We are very excited that you will be joining us this year to become SUPER Learners! Our SUPER classes will take a safari and explore animals and habitats. We will learn about communities, travel to the Moon, and look at folklore and traditions from around the world. We will work with three digit addition and subtraction, measurement, data, multiplication and division. Our SUPER Learners will also work with STEM or science, solving problems, working with experiments, and practice being engineers.
 
So, enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Take lots of time to read and be ready to put on your superhero capes this fall! We can't wait to fly through Second Grade with you!
 
Your friends,
        Mrs. Brai, Ms. DiMaio and Miss Scinto

Thank you to Mr. Gallagher from Ion Bank for sharing information about wants vs. needs, banking, savings and counting coins with our Second Graders! It was wonderful for our students to hear directly from a community member. 
 
This week students will be continuing their work with community, leadership, and citizenship in Humanities. This week we will be wrapping up our unit on Making a Difference in Our Community. We will begin looking at immigration to this country as we talk about those that traveled from England on the Mayflower. In Math, students will be working with numbers to 100. We will focus on subtracting two digit numbers. Students will be practicing being engineers and solving problems as a team again this week as we continue our STEM/Science hands-on activities this Friday.
  
We have an early lunch schedule this year. Students will be having a short working healthy snack in the afternoon to maintain strong minds and bodies throughout the day. Snack options could include a piece of fruit or cut vegetables, crackers, or  pretzels. We will be sending home a letter with some suggestions and additional information. If you have any questions, please contact your classroom teacher. (Please do not send in any snacks with nuts or nut-butters.)
 
We can't wait to see all of our SUPER Second Graders on Monday morning!
