    Mrs. Brown's 2nd Grade
    Welcome to 2nd grade! I am so excited to have another exciting year in second with a new batch of friends! 
    A little about me: I gave been teaching at Belmar for 5 years. I have taught computers classes to Kindergarten-6th grade and been a classroom teacher for 1st-3rd grades in general and special education settings.  I love teaching and enjoy spending my days with my students. 
    What does a typical day in second grade look like?

     Links to help your second grader:
     Parents: Information/ Links
    In order for your child to fully read to his or her best ability, 30 minutes of reading must be completed nightly. The more involved you are in your child's reading, the better ability he/she will have to master comprehension strategies.  

    We are avid readers in 2nd grade, and as a result of the reading demands of some of our second graders, I have signed our class up for Scholastic Reading Club. When you purchase books for your child to read, Scholastic donates credits to help build our class library. The class code to order online is:  NFJKJ
