Second Grade

Weekly Happenings

Thank you for donating to our latest service project. It was so sweet to see how excited the kids were to give something to someone in need.


When we get back from winter break we will be starting a money unit in math. Student's will be expected to solve word problems involving money. Therefore, they will have to know the value of a penny, nickle, dime, quarter and the dollar. Any practice at home identifying coins and their value would be helpful. Also adding a combination of coins would help your student immensely. Thank you in advance for the head start!
