Dear Second Grader,
Welcome to second grade! I am thrilled to have you in my class and excited to be your teacher this year. I hope that you have enjoyed your summer at camp and on family vacations.
Second grade is going to be a wonderful experience for you. There will be a lot of opportunities for you to explore and discover new topics and you will learn a lot. Second grade is an important year for reading and writing. You will be reading and writing in many different genres. You will publish personal narratives, fairy tales, informational books, poetry, and write persuasive letters. Get ready to learn your multiplication facts and build on your problem solving ability too. We will learn about mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds and take many trips throughout the year to places like the Bronx Zoo and Weinberg Nature Center. As you can see it will be a busy year.
I look forward to meeting you on the first day of school. Please bring a book you have read this summer or one of your favorites on the first day. See you Tuesday September 4th.
