2nd grade is awesome

I love 2nd grade! Your theme sounds cute. I wouldn't put stars for "acing a test" though. Don't shame any students in public. You could do Star of the Week with a Hollywood theme, and pick a student each week to share something about themselves.

You will still do guided reading, but the books will be harder. Some kids will be really good readers, so you might want to find some easy chapter books for them to read.

Think of 2nd graders as kindergartners who already know how to "do school"! You should have a variety of seating options, or if your school is not into flex seating, the students should have a desk or table.

You will like 2nd grade.
