Welcome to Second Grade
Mrs. Maureen Carnavos
Second Grade is an important milestone in your child's education. We will prepare to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion and embark upon a curriculum filled with new discoveries, interesting and fun activities, and opportunities for each child to grow spiritually, academically, and socially. I look forward to working together to ensure that your child achieves success.
Please click on the subject areas listed on the menu on the left side of this page to find out about the topics we will be discussing each month.

Our Mission to Mars
Our class will be involved in a special STEM related project with our seventh grade. The children will be designing a model of what they think the future colony on Mars will look like. Last week, we learned facts about this planet and the children worked in teams to design a blueprint for the model we will build after Easter vacation. Look for a letter to go home this week with a list of supplies we need. ( milk cartons, cardboard boxes, margarine tubs etc.) It is also a good lesson on recycling and reusing objects for another purpose.
The children will learn about the force this we as we design and fly our own kites. Each group will construct and design a sled kite and fly it in the schoolyard when the wind is cooperative. They will measure the length of string they used to launch their kites using inches and centimeters.
Our tadpoles will arrive next week as we begin our Life Science Unit. We already have eggs from the Suffolk County Farm warming up in an incubator in the library. We should have some chicks in about two weeks. I have also ordered caterpillars and ladybugs for the children to observe life cycles.
The Flat Stanley project has been sent home. Please see that it is mailed and sent back to school by April 3rd.
Children may bring in their Stanleys as soon as they receive them back in the mail.
