Ann MacArthur Primary School second graders enjoyed a visit from New York State Senator James F. Gaughran, who read them a story reminding them of all the things they learned in second grade.
 
The students in Amanda McCarthy’s class sat together in the library listening to the Senator read aloud “Things I Learned in Second Grade” by Amy Schwartz.  The story captures the highlights of second grade including learning to spell bigger words, calculate more difficult math problems and read chapter books.
 
Senator Gaughran also taught the children what a Senator does and shared that like them, he is looking forward to summer recess.
