What is special about Second Grade?


    Second grade is about exploring our world and growing strong as a reader and writer. Keep reading to learn about some of the exciting special activities we have planned for the year.

    Writer’s Celebrations:  After each writing unit, we celebrate by inviting another class and sharing our stories with them.  At the end, we have a special snack time.

    Fun Science Experiments:  We make things explode in our matter unit, launch balloon rockets in our air unit, and raise butterflies in our life cycles unit.

    Metamorphosis: We observe the process of caterpillars changing into butterflies.

    First Field Trip: A visit to Marble’s Children’s Museum including exploring the displays and activities and watching an IMAX Movie.

    Second Field Trip: A visit to the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro to conclude our Science unit on animals.

    Polar Express Day: On the day before winter break, we’ll wear pajamas, prepare treats, and watch “Polar Express” on our Smartboards.
