Our second graders spend the year becoming fluent readers, tackling mathematical algorithms and learning about the world’s cultures. Second graders “travel” to a variety of countries including Kenya, Mexico, and China, and experience the culture, food, geography, and way of life. Second graders are often found cooking customary dishes in our kitchen, playing a traditional game or acting out folk tales. Second graders also work to develop their writing skills as they write, edit, and revise small moment stories and longer anthologies.
Third grade calls for increased independence and expectations as students expand their skills and abilities. Third graders conduct long-term research projects, immerse themselves in Native American studies, explore complicated math concepts, read longer and write more!
