“I hope to impart to my students love, for them to know the stories of God and to know that they are important.”
IN THE CLASSROOM
In second grade, students continue to build on a strong academic foundation in reading. She expands this learning with a concentrated Good and Beautiful program, along with a wealth of amazing reading books. For math, students study addition, subtraction, place value, problem-solving, multiplication and division. In spelling/English, students will work on word recognition, vocabulary, and grammar. History lessons cover early American and cultural history. Science lessons explore where things live, how they work, and much more.
