Welcome to Second Grade!
 
Second graders are enthusiastic learners!  They will be learning independence, problem solving, and valuable interpersonal skills!  Through authentic learning experiences involving projects, research, writing and other communication, we will all grow as life-long learners.
 
We believe that students learn best from other students whether in their own classroom or through other global connections.
 
The workshop model guides our classroom instruction so students work on differentiated tasks tailored to their needs.  While the students are working, the teacher can deliver individualized instruction to either individual or small groups of students. 
 
Technology integrated throughout the school day allows our students to be 21st century learners and problem solvers.  Rather than learning one particular software program, students discern the best use of technology for a particular assignment.  It may be a podcast, video, blog post, or even a puppet show using an app on the iPad.  We know that technology is here to stay and are thankful to our PTA for supporting both teachers and students in this endeavor.
