Welcome to
Ms. Alfred's Class!

Welcome to 2nd grade! This year will be an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. During second grade, your child will build their reading skills, write stories, add, subtract, and so much more. I hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our second grade. Here are some ways you can help:

• Celebrate your child's success, no matter how small it may seem. This will keep your child enthusiastic about learning and proud of their work!
• Read to and with your child every day, if possible. The more your child is exposed to language, the easier it will be for him/her to incorporate new skills in reading and writing in the classroom. Remember to record all reading in your child's reading log.

I am looking forward to a working with your child this year and helping him/her to achieve his/her full potential.
