Grade 2A

Dear 2A and 2B Parents,

I want to thank you for a wonderful year! It was truly a pleasure to teach your children. I had an amazing time getting to know both classes and watch them grow! They were awesome and made teaching an adventure every day! I enjoyed preparing for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion with them. May crowning was emotional and they did an amazing job. The really did a fabulous job with The Living Wax Museum. They worked hard and it showed! The costumes, reports and poster were superb! It is so hard to say goodbye and I wish you and your children all the best. Their future is so bright that they will have to wear shades! Have a great summer!!


Mrs. Preiss xoxo

We have been very busy this month and its only half way done.

We celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday for a whole week.
Monday was Fox in Socks Day and we all wore funny socks.
Tuesday was Crazy Hat Day and our class was very creative.
Wednesday was Wacky Wednesday and we wore mismatched, inside out, and backwards clothing.
Thursday was Teacher Swap and I was with the Pre-K 1 Class. Mrs. Becker came to our class. Each teacher read a Dr. Seuss book and did a craft.
Friday was Oh The Places You’ll Go Day and we wore t-shirts to our favorite colleges. We also had a door contest and we came in 2nd Place.

This week we had the Winter Carnival. We had a wonderful time playing games, getting our face painted, and we danced with the DJ. All in all it was a great day!

In reading we are doing the unit on Our Changing world. We are discussing the authors purpose and different genres.

In Grammar we just finished adjectives and we reviewed nouns and verbs. We did a cute writing activity to go with the Dr. Seuss theme. What would you do if you had a Thing 1 or Thing 2?

In Social Studies we are learning about laws and our government.

In Religion we are finishing up the chapters leading to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This Saturday our class will be receiving the sacrament for the first time. Please pray for us.
