Welcome to the second grade classroom. You are going to have a terrific year in second grade. The classroom will be well organized and everyone will succeed. I love teaching and have been teaching for over 25 years and you will love learning. You will also learn about our wonderful and loving Savior throughout the school day.
My favorite subject is reading. By the time you leave second grade you will love reading as well. Second grade will be a memorable year for you. Here are a few examples of some of the memorable experiences you can expect:
Our reading incentive program is called Reach for the Stars. Students read books in order to earn 30 points and earn incentives as they read.
We also read Flat Stanley and mail him around the United States. You will have as many adventures in second grade as Flat Stanley has in the stories the students write about him.
We camp in the classroom for 1 week and do a variety of activities that evolve around camping and our curriculum.
Friendship Friday-The first and second graders switch classrooms and do a variety of activities that support Christian values.
Service Projects-We will do a variety of activities throughout the year (Bible verse door hanger or frame, A Sweet Treat, Christmas Cards, Valentines Treat (these are usually given to a church staff member) and a Lunchroom Staff Thank you activity.
