To my 2nd Graders
By Mrs. Burbidge
You learn so much in 2nd grade
You study bats, erosion, and how magnets are made
You practice your math and love to read
But these are not all the things that you need
When you learn to write a paragraph well
It surely makes your teacher?s heart swell
You love Art, Music, and PE
You sign out books at Library
You learn to be patient, kind, and polite
You always try to do what?s right
I miss morning meeting on our rug
I wish I could give you a great big hug
I see you on Zoom, we chat and say Hi
I miss you more as each day goes by
Your sweet little faces, on Zoom I can see
But it?s not the same when you?re not in school with
Don?t forget the fun and laughs we have had
I know we will see each other, so don?t be sad
Although right now we have to be apart
Know that you are always in my heart
