Brownsboro Elementary School


Second Grade is the BEST.  We have so much fun learning in a hands-on way  My goal is that every student is highly engaged while learning what we need to learn in second grade.  We will be working hard to get ready for 3rd grade.  As a parent, you can do many things to make sure your child's year is the best it can be.  You can make sure that your child reads his/her guided reading book every night.  You can study addition and subtraction math facts with your child each evening.  Checking your child's folder is another way to help your child be successful.  Be sure to contact me if you need any additional support, or if you have any concerns or questions.  
Thank you,
Mrs. Cawthon

We have been studying precipitation in Science.  So why not make some SNOW?!  Mix 2 1/2 cups of baking soda with 1/2 cup of white conditioner and it looks and feels just like snow.  The kids had a great time using their senses feeling, smelling and seeing the snow.  We even had some tiny snowmen!
