Meet Mrs. Long

BA English, 2nd grade teacher, pottery teacher

Hello All! My name is Anna Long and I am proud to be Mount Saint Mary's 2nd grade teacher. I have a BA in English and try to incorporate as much creative writing as possible, and making it fun! I recently moved back to my hometown of Manchester 10 months ago from the big Island of Hawaii and I am so happy to be back home and to also have my 4 children here as students at Mount Saint Mary. We love hiking, adventuring, and spending our Summers on Lake Sunapee.

Curriculum-

LANGUAGE ARTS-

We love writing prompts!  Students will often choose a writing prompt which gets them exploring and expressing creatively. We use Evan Moor textbooks which offer a wide variety of specific subjects- grammar and punctuation, phonics, daily language review, reading comprehension, 6-trait writing, reading comprehension, and handwriting practice.

SCIENCE-

We use Science Fusion textbooks, currently on Unit 6 Earth and Its Resources with a focus on what changes earth, what are natural resources, and how can we classify plant products? We use the interactive online platform which has videos and clips.

SOCIAL STUDIES-

We are studying the regions of the United States! Every week with a focus on a different region.  We have been making mini-books, using maps, with added curriculum from Evan-Moor. For our Fair Share in April, students will choose a state of their choice to do a project and research on.

RELIGION-

For religion we incorporate the textbook Sadlier We Believe: Jesus Shares God's Life while reading Bible stories from a book called Jesus Calling: Bible Storybook.  I also find it so important during this time to pray, reflect, and be reminded of our virtues.
