Greetings My Lovely Educators! I hope this note finds you all doing fantastic. I am a 4th year 1st grade teacher and I have agreed to get a group of freshly done first graders geared up and ready for the 2nd grade. Obviously, I can look up the content standards for their grade and/or just make sure that have all their first grade fundamentals taken care of (I plan to do that anyway), but I thought I would ask some of you 2nd grade teachers what are some key elements, or topics if you will that you think I should cover with this group? Lets say these three girls were entering your 2nd grade class in the Fall... what would you want for them to know hands down? Any feedback is greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance!
