The second-grade teachers strive to make school a fun and memorable experience. In language arts, we use a variety of literature to enhance our balanced literacy program. This consists of daily self-selected reading, guided reading, word study and writing. Our mathematics instruction is a conceptual-based, hands-on approach that truly engages the children. In science, we will explore plants, animals, magnets, matter and weather using literature, experiments and real life connections. In social studies, we will “travel” to ancient China and Egypt, explore the lives of Native and Famous Americans, fine tune our citizenship and map skills, and venture into an informative unit on economics.
We look forward to working with the children as they embark on their second-grade adventure.
