Hard Work Pays Off for the 2nd Grade Atoms

The Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship 2nd grade students read to their stuffed animals as a reward for achieving their classroom goal set earlier this year.

Friday, April 16th, 2021Earlier 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!
