Post by Erika Bakker, 2nd Grade Teacher
There are fourteen children in second grade, and Nancy Colón would have loved each one of them. They are a cheerful bunch, smart and sweet. They are hard workers who also enjoy being a little bit silly.
These children and I spend time together each day, doing our spelling, reading books, writing down ideas, practicing double digit addition. A lot of what we do follows Nancy’s plans. The children have learned about apples and our skeletal system and how to spell ‘because’. These lessons all come from her big binders of second grade activities.
