    As educators, we encourage the students to learn through self-discovery and teamwork as we support them in the learning process. Students will be working with many word problems that pertain to real-life situations. The enVisionMath Program is aligned to the Common Core. By using differentiated instruction, we are able to meet all the needs and levels of all students in our classroom.

    • Earth Systems: Processes that Shape the Earth

     Science in second grade requires lots of teamwork and deep thinking!  Through trial and error, students will be able to get many of their questions answered through experimentation. Lessons will be carefully planned with an appropriate balance of inquiry-based, hands-on learning opportunities and engaging content resources.  Technology will be integrated on a daily basis. Students will be required to do some note taking and are asked to always, "Think like a scientist!"
