It’s hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close! In these final weeks, second graders have wrapped up their learning about money and are now exploring measurement and time. As summer nears, they are reminded that the world is full of learning and to see their environment as an opportunity to think deeper: to add/subtract toy prices at the store, use sidewalk chalk to count change, compare angles/vertices on different pieces of playground equipment, measure the length of a popsicle (before eating it!). This summer, students are encouraged to take learning outside and get creative!
Please be on the lookout for a summer homework packet coming home with your child. It is imperative that your child continue to work on math/reading/writing skills over the summer in order to not regress. It has been a fantastic year full of smiles, tears, challenges, ah-ha’s, Growth Mindset moments, and most of all, FUN!
