Our reading story this week is "Helen Keller."  We will be focusing on sequencing, and adjectives.  We will also be studying Martin Luther King and his legacy.  Please ask your child to tell you what leadership qualities Dr. King exhibited in his life's work.

We are continuing to learn about addition and subtraction with/without regrouping.  This week we are focusing on 3 digit subtraction.

We will take our Performance Series tests on the following dates:

January 25th-Reading

Welcome to 2nd Grade!  

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am so excited to be your child’s second grade teacher at Prattville Primary School! I look forward to working with you to ensure that this school year is both fun and educational for your child. Second grade orientation is August 2nd at 1:30.  Please make arrangements to join us. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to become acquainted, collect supplies, and learn about upcoming classroom events and procedures. Students are welcome! I look forward to meeting you, and working with you this year.
