Ward School 2nd Grade Classroom
 
Hi.

We are a second grade classroom in Newton, Massachusetts. Massachusetts is a state located in the United States of America.  We are near the city of Boston which is the capital of Massachusetts.  The name of our school is the John Ward Elementary School. We start here when we are five in Kindergarten and we graduate when we are ten and in the fifth grade. In the United States we must go to school by law until we are sixteen years old.
We have 21 students in our class.  We also have two teachers. We have one head teacher and one who is practicing to be a teacher. We start school at 8:20 in the morning and leave at 3:oo in the afternoon. We bring our lunches to school and eat them in the classroom. While we are in school we study many different subjects.  We have reading, writing, mathematics, science (where we are learning about butterflies), social studies (where we are learning about Mexico), physical education, art, music, library and Spanish.

Since we are studying Mexico we thought that you might help us out. We each wrote one question below that we would like to know more about below. Can you email us at the above email address and tell us a little more about yourselves?

Below we each also wrote a sentence or two about our favorite subject in school and or our favorite activity to do outside of school. 

Enjoy!
