Welcome to Class 2-210

My name is Kerry Minogue, I have been teaching for six years and this will be my second year at PS 207. I look forward to working with you and your child this year. We will be reading exciting books written by wonderful authors. Second graders bring enthusiasm and excitement to every new thing they learn and I know it will be a great year.

Upon reaching 2nd grade students are often ready to accelerate their learning. Students are ready for a more rigorous learning environment than experienced in 1st grade and are able to expand learned skills and their knowledge in each subject area.

In 2nd grade your child will become a more experienced writer, reader and mathematician by working on skills in more complex and comprehensive ways. Students will be reading longer and more complicated books, writing longer and more in-depth pieces and learn more about the concepts behind certain math skills.

What’s more, second graders pursue projects that involve research and critical thinking, which might include doing individual or group work and then sharing learned information through writing, speaking, and art.
