2nd graders were busy squeezing in the last of our math, word study, writing, reading and social studies lessons and play games in these areas to apply teaching points. They were all also very helpful in giving their classrooms one last inventory check while taking reflective look back at all they had accomplished and learned from each other. Class activities focused on the theme of friendship and kindness as friends shared the feelings that accompany change. Morning and closing meeting mini-lessons reminded us all that although we will all be starting new adventures in different classrooms next year, we would always have our 2nd grade experiences and friendships to build on. By Thursday morning, students were eager to attend the Primary School moving up ceremony and visit with the third grade teachers. The second grade team would like to all of the second grade parents who helped us make this year a wonderful one for all of the 2nd grade students.
