In second grade our main goal is for students to become independent learners and problem solvers. Many "hands on" projects, through a variety of media, are planned throughout the year in math, social studies, science, and language arts to reach the multiple intelligences of our students. During "Winds of Time" we immerse ourselves in Ancient Greek culture. We integrate all curriculum areas.

We are especially concerned that students become effective communicators through writing. We use the Writer's Workshop model to encourage students to write original compositions using elaboration and to edit for correct punctuation and spelling. Daily journals and reading response journals are used as well. Second Grade focuses on sequencing as a pre-writing tool.

Our reading material consists of a variety of novels, basals, non-fiction, and trade books. Students have a free choice of books to read daily during silent reading time. We teach phonics and word structure through our spelling program. A variety of learning strategies are taught in all subjects throughout the year to give the students tools to be successful.One of our greatest assets is parent participation in school projects to insure strong understanding of students and communication between school and home. We believe our school is a special and stronger place because of parent involvement.
