Welcome!

My name is Ms. Schwartz, and I have taught at

LCCS since 2004. I love teaching 2nd grade! 

It's a "light bulb" year where so much in math,

reading, and writing clicks for each child in

their own individual way. I enjoy reading,

watching movies, and exploring NYC, 

Hoboken & Jersey City.


 

 

In 2nd grade at LCCS, we have so many wonderful science & social studies units to look forward to!

 

From Seed to Plant/From Farm to Market/Market to Family Recipes: September - December

 

We complete the unit by becoming an expert on a specific fruit or vegetable, and we will have a chance to share our item in a virtual farmer's market! We will also have a multicultural family recipe celebration. We will write a detailed report about our special family recipe, while also learning about each other’s cultures and heritages.

 

The Three States of Matter: January – February

 

The culminating project is an art collage depicting our understanding of solids, liquids, and gases.

 

Weather and Erosion: March - April

 

We end the unit by participating in design challenges aiming to prevent wind or water from changing the shape of the land.

 

Habitats: May - June


The culminating project will be determined by the students! Though some of these studies may be taught remotely this year, they will still include all the special hallmarks of 2nd grade: lively class discussions and brainstorming sessions, exploration through rich literature & non-fiction articles, (virtual) field trips, and at home hands-on experiments.


My office hours are on Fridays from 10-11am.
