Mrs. Senatore's 2nd Grade
Whether you vacationed or stayed near by I hope that your spring break was relaxing.
Your children have come a long way from the first days of 2nd grade and now there are only 9 weeks left until they complete this educational chapter. I know you join me in wanting them to succeed and together we will make them stronger and more capable learners. Thank you for your support and encouragement of your child and me.

Reading and writing poetry with the goal of being able to describe how words and phrases supply rhythm and meaning is the plan for our writing work this month.
