Second grade students in Mrs. Screnci's class explore their new manipulative tens and ones blocks before getting down to the serious business of adding groups of 10 to a number.  Great teamwork was demonstrated by all the students!

4th and 5th graders take time to read, discuss, write and share their ideas with their classmates.  Francis Wyman students are motivated readers and demonstrate their enthusiasm for reading in many ways including the Accelerated Reader program which is recognized weekly at Francis Wyman.
