Welcome to Our 2016-2017 Second Grade Community
Big Idea: SYSTEMS
We believe each student in our classroom deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged each and every day he/she comes to school.
Differentiation is key in second grade as we strive to teach the whole child, but we also encourage everyone to feel that he/she is part of our total community system. Our integrated units of study all relate to SYSTEMS to include: Magnets, Human Body Systems, Community Systems, Weather Systems and Eco-systems.
Our Daily 5 approach for literacy gives students choices while they work independently to include read to self, read to someone, work on writing, word work and listen to reading. Students are then able to work in small groups or individually with the teacher for guided reading, assessment and conferencing. Our writer's workshop is inspired by Lucy Calkins. We focus on personal narratives, informational writing, opinion writing and poetry.
We follow a rigorous mathematics curriculum based on engageny that nurtures a solid understanding of key mathematical concepts.
We appreciate the support of our families as we have fun learning and growing together as 21st century citizens!
