We are settling into our new routines and are working towards gradually building more independence in second grade. In religion we are learning about God's creation and Mother Teresa. We are very excited to start our first book club book! In math, we are working on addition and subtraction concepts. Our science unit is on matter and we have many awesome hands on experiences in this unit. Students love this one!
