Ms. Lefkowitz

Hi!  I'm Ms. Lefkowitz.  I love teaching second grade.  I really enjoy reading aloud to my students.  I love to read on my own too. I also enjoy traveling and coffee!!!!


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 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!

Thoughout the year, I will include all the special hallmarks of 2nd grade: lively class discussions and brainstorming sessions, exploration through rich literature & non-fiction articles, and hands-on experiments.
