I am so excited to begin this new school year! We are off to a great start of learning and growing in second grade.
I just want to remind you that our specials are as follows:
Mon - gym, music
Tues - art
Wed - gym, music
Thur - lib.
Fri - gym
We have already begun our important discussions of what good readers do when they read. We learned what the word metacognition means - thinking about your thinking! The students enjoyed learning about this idea and how it relates to reading. We talked about all the wonderful things our brain does when we read.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone on Thursday, Sept. 10th. See you then!


  1. I like learning in your class, it is lots of fun. I can't wait to publish my first poem. From, Madeline 11

  2. I like social studies and my Dad likes maps. I thought it was fun drawing maps today. On the US map I would like to visit California.
    Have a great weekend.
