Second Grade October Activities

Posted on October 2, 2020

                                            Happy Fall!

October is very exciting for Second Grade.  We are preparing for our All Saint’s Celebration which will be held at the 1:00 Mass on Friday, October 30.  

The students learned all about different communities and the difference between them.  They drew awesome pictures and talked about their favorite community.

In ELA students wrote a Personal Narrative about an experience they had during the summer.  They wrote creative stories using excellent descriptive words to keep the reader interested.

In Math, the students are learning how to show 2-digit numbers in different ways.  

We are looking forward to Halloween and all that Fall has in store for us.
