Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to 2nd grade! Our names are Mrs. Law and Ms. Rabinowitz and we will be your child’s second grade teachers. Second grade is an exciting time as children take off on new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which learning of new skills is accelerated. During second grade, your child will continue to build upon their reading and writing skills, add, subtract, and so much more. We hope to make your child’s learning experience a fun and exciting one, and we hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.

So much happens in second grade! Because of this, the year will be full of important transitions. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes. 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 class. 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 everyday, if possible. They 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.

We are looking forward to working with your child this year and helping him/her to achieve his/her full potential.


Mrs. Law

Ms. Rabinowitz
