2nd Hand News

October 5-9

The big news this past week was the discovery that second graders love to write, even at recess! They are working building writing stamina. Some topics of choice include a 2nd grade survival guide, fiction, and what it's like to have a fever. It's wonderful to see their enthusiasm, and the sharing and giving of suggestions to each other. We also worked on tapping out words and sounds, and continue to build vocabulary skills.

Can second graders fill in a 100s board, skip count, and see patterns as a group without any help? Can they create their own fact families? Yes, they can.


  • The permission slip is due on Tuesday for our Wednesday walk to Peddlar's Village with Big Friends to see the scarecrows.
  • The BFS 5k is on Saturday, October 17th.
  • If your student brought a clipboard home because they wanted to write even more, please make sure it comes back on Tuesday. Thanks!
  • Since this week is a short week, spelling and a shorter math homework will be both due on Friday.

Have a great day off!
