So Much Fun in Second Grade
Students in second grade were so excited this year ,when they came to realize that Mrs. Strelow was moving up to second grade with them! Joining the team with Mrs. Tully and Mrs. Coughlin, these three teachers are excited about all of the happenings in second grade this year. Students are working through their last year of Fundations! These little friends started this program in Kindergarten and will finish this year. They are excited for upcoming units in math that will include place value, counting and comparing numbers, adding and subtracting and so much more! The biggest excitement in second grade is the performance of the Wizard of Oz near the end of the year. Students are teachers are enjoying this year and can't wait to see what the rest of year has in store!
