Following up on the foundations established in 1st grade, 2nd grade focuses on transitioning students from early readers to chapter books. It is at this time that more class discussion about the reading is important. This helps students learn to be more collaborative and accepting of different points of view and builds confidence. Science and social studies continue with age appropriate lessons along with STEM focused active lessons.
