We will ensure your child receives an individualized education based on his/her learning needs. We will be implementing the Primary Years Programme framework for a transdisciplanary approach to teaching, this means that we will teach all of the subjects together so we can dig deeper into learning. We will encourage students to be inquirers and investigate what interests them. Students will also start Spanish class once per week.
Our Second Grade curriculum is based on the Common Core Curriculum. Our balanced literacy program includes phonics/spelling instruction through Letterland, vocabulary and written responses are explored through the use of the Scott Foresman Reading Street Series, differentiation through Guided Reading Groups, and RtI to strengthen gaps of struggling students and enrichment for those that are above grade level.
The math curriculum is learned through the exploration of manipulatives, number talks, fact fluency and writing about the mathematical processes. We utilize best practices and collaboration to determine what math resources are used. Data analysis drives our instruction to meet the needs of all students.
Science, Social Studies and Technology are integrated into the literacy and math curriculum.
