Second Grade balances active, hands on academic and social engagement with quiet reflection.
We push aside the tables of the classroom to build forts, engineer water balloon catapults, imagine and construct a model neighborhood, discover how birds use their beaks, and observe the decomposers in our compost pile. We also sit quietly listening to the mindful bell, spend silent sustained reading out in our garden, and sketch the birds around us.
Second Graders push out into the community and bring the outdoors into the classroom. As part of our integrated Project Time, we read maps as we explore our local neighborhood, city, and the Bay Area.
