Welcome to 2nd grade!
We have split our day into blocks of learning. Mrs. Kayser and Mrs. Wirick both teach science and math. In science we get to do lots of fun hands on exploring and discovering with solids and liquids, rocks, and insects. In math we use the Ready Classroom program complimented with the online i-ready lessons catered to each individual student and their needs. Ms. Coons and Mrs. Akins both teach reading and writing. In English we get to use the Wonders program integrated with the 6 + 1 traits to dig deeper into our learning experiences. A big focus for us this year involves the Leader In Me and social emotional learning experiences that provide a process to help develop the essential life skills and characteristics students need in order to thrive in the 21st century. To continue learning at home, you can expect weekly homework packets that include spelling, nightly reading homework, and occasional math practice. Feel free to check the library resources page for fun online activities too!
Lastly, 2nd grade gets the opportunity to go to the pumpkin patch in the fall and participate in swimming lessons in the spring!
