I absolutely love second graders! Their curiosity, enthusiasm, and energy are so endearing and the leaps in their learning inspire me each year!
I find that maintaining a very structured classroom with clear expectations provides children with the reassurance to take risks and blossom as learners and as individuals. Because of the rigors of our curriculum, I think that it is so important to balance these high goals with the creative process. We have enjoyed producing plays as well as learning through projects and technology. Second graders love these activities! I really enjoy guiding them and being a part of their growth. They are what make me love my job!
