Mrs. Merrix's 2nd Grade Classroom


Hello 2nd grade students and parents!

Below you will find several online resources which correlate with the home-based packets you have received.

You will also find the online lesson plans for the remainder of the school year (weeks 1-9) across the top of the page.

Please do not feel overwhelmed by the work your child has been given. The work is not to be taken for a grade, but rather it is meant to give your child the instruction our class had not yet covered this school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me through Remind or by email.

I miss all of my students so much! I cannot wait to see them one day soon.

-Mrs. Merrix ❤
