Second grade is a time to encourage your child’s developing curiosity and ability to understand more complex ideas. Our balanced literacy approach provides a solid framework of integration between all language arts skills. Reading other books at home is encouraged. Teaching comprehension strategies and vocabulary development are top priorities. Supplemental core stories also provide opportunity to integrate Biblical principles, science, social studies, health, art, and other subjects. Technology is used to enhance learning experiences. Specialists teach your child Mandarin, visual arts, performing arts, physical education, and library media skills. Each has a key part in your child’s week.
