We love celebrating birthdays in second grade!

Our school policy, however, does not allow food treats to be brought into the classroom. If your child would still like to bring in a treat, non-food items may be brought in. Examples include pencils, erasers, bookmarks, stickers, etc.



Allergy Note

Everyday in second grade we enjoy a snack. Water bottles will be allowed as long as they do not become a distraction. Please encourage your student to bring in a healthy snack each day to enjoy as we work.

Classroom News


Throughout the week we began discussing how characters respond to events and challenges that happen in a story. First we identified the character and then we determined the character's problem. After figuring out the major problem in the story, we discussed how the character responded to the problem! Try doing this with your child as you read at home!


 This week in Math we finished our first module of the year. We learned all about place value and will use this new knowledge to help us as we transition into our new module which will be all about adding and subtracting within 100.

Are you looking for some extra practice for your child?? Your child can access Zearn at home but visiting zearn.org and clicking "Sign in with Goggle." Students should use their log-in number followed by @elmhurst205.org. 


In Writing, we finished working on our first story! We learned how to add dialogue and practiced adding good word choice. Next week we will be starting a new story and learning how to add more detail to our writing.
