Our Second Grade Learning Community
Together Mrs. Fink, Mrs. Taft and I have designed a second grade program intended to meet your child's needs. This year your child is a member of a classroom which encourages him/her to set and reach realistic learning goals, while gaining confidence as a reader, writer, mathematician and explorer. Together we hope to give your child the foundation he/she needs to become a fluent and confident reader/writer and gain a love for learning!
Your child will have opportunities to work in small and large cooperative groups as well as independently. Your child will have one teacher for reading, spelling, grammar, and math. He/ She will engage in rich, thoughtful weekly center activities that integrate subject matter and reinforce concepts across the curriculum.
Our curriculum is designed to develop your child's knowledge and skills in all developmental areas: physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. Children are both expected and encouraged to learn at their own rate and level. Our classrooms and curriculum are structured to eliminate failure and promote successful learning for all children. With this philosophy, your child's grades will be a reflection of his/her individual growth and capabilities in each subject area.
Our goal is for happy, well adjusted second graders!
