Welcome! You have found the online home for Mr. Brunken's Grade 2 Early Bird class at Happy Kids.
Grade 2 is an important year. Students do a lot of social, academic, and emotional growing in this year. This class will reflect that growth. One of my main focuses is writing for my Grade 2 students is writing. Writing is the most difficult language skill to acquire, and therefore I feel it is very important to begin developing those skills early. This year, students will learn to write a variety of compositions after they master the initial writing lesson of constructing a good paragraph. I am looking forward to another great year.
