Hard Work Pays Off for the 2nd Grade Atoms
Friday, April 16th, 2021—Earlier this year, the Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship students in Mrs. Badman’s 2nd grade class set a goal for them to achieve this school year. With hard work, dedication and perseverance the Atoms reached their goal earlier this month. The reward for reaching their goal was being able to invite a furry, squishy, fluffy stuffed animal friend to join them for Drop Everything And Read (DEAR) time. DEAR time is a favorite amongst the Atoms, as they practice their reading fluency skills, and they have an opportunity to explore a variety of children's books and novels. Plus, who doesn’t love reading aloud to a stuffed animal friend. Keep up the great work, Atoms!
