From Ms. Mapp-Jonathan:

Second graders at Victory are doing wonderful things. We have been very busy. My second graders participated in a Swim/Gym program sponsored by the Portsmouth YMCA and Portsmouth Public Schools.  

The Swim/Gym Program is designed to promote fitness and personal water safety skills. Our second graders learned personal safety skills, water adjustment, floating and treading. Students were also involved in 25 minutes of fitness activities.

We also received a surprise visit from two special characters, Chuck E and the Cat in the Hat. Chuck E stopped by to invite the students from Victory to a family night of fun at Chuck E Cheese. We were very excited. The Cat in the Hat made a special appearance in our classroom to read our favorite story. We would like to send a special thank you to both of them.

Although we have had some fun times in Room 203, we are also busy learning. Our students are busy at work on the computers, working on the Waterford Early Literacy Program. The program is designed specifically for the early grades, pre-k through second grade, with easy navigation, scaffold instruction, audio, and multimedia prompts to ensure success. Our students are also  working in small groups in order to reinforce skills learned in the whole group instruction. This allows students more attention and gives them a chance to ask specific questions they may have about what they have learned.  Good job second graders!
