Welcome to Second Grade
Mrs. Mary McCloskey, Teacher
I am proud to be a part of the St. Matthew School Community. The students and families are kind, supportive, generous, and faith-filled.
In second grade I especially love seeing the students engaged in discovery during science inquiry projects. Our science units include the solar system, exploring the Earth's structure, and solids, liquids, and gases.
Helping second graders become better writers is one of my greatest pleasures as a teacher. The students develop skills of peer editing as they work together to make revisions, add details, and create fictional and informational essays.
Come by second grade and you might meet Mr. Wizard! He is an important member of our class. He helps the students learn about friendship, sharing, and P.R.I.S.M - Pride, Respect, Inclusion, Safety and Manners. (And .... his favorite color is purple!)
