Welcome to Ms. Barker's 2nd Grade Class




    I am excited about taking your child on a journey through reading, writing, spelling, math, science, and social studies.  Children enter second grade at various stages of academic growth.  Our goal is to prepare each child for future success by providing the academic, social, and organizational skills that he or she will need to be successful in third grade and beyond!  This is such a fun time and a year where we will see so much growth in reading, writing, and math!  Students will learn and practice listening and speaking skills and will share their ideas with their peers and other students throughout our school.  Students will start the year reviewing skills learned in first grade and by the end of the year, they will be further competent in reading, addition, subtraction, writing, and so much more.  Each child will have the opportunity to work independently and to collaborate with others. This year, I am expecting great progress for all of my diligent 2nd graders.
