2nd Grade

2nd Grade students build upon their learning habits and foundational skills from 1st Grade. To gain collaboration and cooperation skills, students enjoy working in groups or with partners. 2nd Grade students develop executive functioning skills such as organization, attention, perseverance, and time-management. In addition, students practice critical thinking skills such as analyzing, organizing, evaluating, and implementing strategies previously learned by solving a problem in a new way. They are empowered to make choices about where to work, how to practice skills, and which extension activities they want to complete.
