My name is Michelle Myslinski. My students call me Ms. M and I teach 2nd grade. I was born and raised in Brooklyn New York and after traveling up and down the east coast with my husband who was enlisted USMC we decided to move her to Las Vegas. This is my 2nd year here and my family loves it. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences with students for many years to come.
Second grade forms the second layer of the foundation of a child’s primary education. In Math, they are introduced to larger numbers (building upon what was taught to them in the first grade) and fundamental operations such as addition and subtraction. In second grade they also learn measurement of time, length, distance, weight along with additional basic concepts of geometry. For English Language Arts, they are introduced to basic grammar skills and cursive writing. There is a big focus on comprehension. In Science, they explore basic earth and space, along with planets and the weather system. Social Studies, provides a basic understanding of the government and current events. They will also have a basic understanding of American history and are taught about some noteworthy American Presidents. The subject of Geography includes learning about the different continents, oceans and countries across the world.
In my second grade classroom, games are used to aid in comprehension of subject matter making learning fun and hands-on. We work closely with First in Math which is an online program designed with various games based on grade level. This program allows students to access different areas of learning with a twist of fun.
