Welcome to Our Second Grade Class Blog

Welcome to our new blog page.  This page will be used for second graders to post their thoughts and ideas.  They will be able to post their thoughts by choice and they will be asked by me to post reflections about topics we are studying in the classroom.  We will all have a chance to share ideas and read about others' ideas and questions.  Happy blogging everybody!
