Dear Second Grade Students and Families,

Thank you for sharing your Maker Day creations yesterday.  Wow!  You are such creative kids!  Your creativity is just one of the many things I will miss about all of you.  Teaching you has been wonderful experience.  I think Ms. Regan is going to love having you as a class next year as much as I did.


  1. Today’s special is library.  Ms. River’s recommends that you spend some extra time today curled up reading a good book.  You could also read a book online, read a magazine or newspaper article, or read some poems.  I am reading a thought-provoking book right now about teaching students about race and racism in the United States.


  1. Did you already set your personal reading goal for this summer?  Does your goal include reading a good fit book for at least 20 minutes a day?  I sure hope so.  Perhaps today, you could reread your favorite books.  I find that I love revisiting the characters in stories I enjoy.  It’s like visiting old friends.
  2. Go on Lexia for 20 minutes.


  1. Write a letter to your third grade teacher.  This will be your writing assignment for the week.  Include information about your interests outside of school, skills you feel confident with and skills you want to work on at school, your favorite subject at school, and one thing you’re excited about as a rising 3rd grader.  Be sure to start your letter with a greeting (e.g., Dear Ms. Regan,  ) and to end your letter with a closing (Sincerely,  ).  Also, make sure to use your best handwriting and to proofread your letter to fix any spelling, capitalization, or punctuation errors.  When you’re done, send a scanned copy or photograph of your letter to Ms. Gray to pass along to Ms. Regan.


  1. Go on Symphony Math for 20 minutes.  There is an end-of-year assessment that all students should complete before the end of the year.
