Reflexing their Muscles!

Submitted by elyssa.marzan on Sat, 01/30/2021 - 17:48

Congratulations to these 2nd grade students who have been working so hard learn their addition and subtraction facts fluently. These students have earned 100% proficiency on Reflex Math.  Reflex Math is a website many teachers use to help students become fluent in addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts.  Students love the interactive games and being able to track which facts they know by heart, and which ones they still need to work on. Great job, Isaac, David, Nadia, Josh, and Kenedi!

Interview with a Snowman

2nd Grade students learned the ins and outs of what it takes to be a journalist.  Each 2nd grader was able to create their own unique snowman and then got the chance tto sit down with them to have a little chat.  They interviewed their snowman and asked questions like what their favorite winter sport or favorite ice cream was.  These kids are on their way to a whole new career!
