Welcome to Second Grade!
Second grade at Bannockburn School introduces children to a variety of skills and learning opportunities. The students learn through differentiated instruction, direct instruction and from each other. The teacher is their facilitator, but the goal is to foster an appreciation for lifelong learning. The students are encouraged to work cooperatively to build an environment where they feel safe to discuss their ideas and let their own interests and curiosity drive instruction.
Second graders are learning how to be independent thinkers. They are also learning how to be more responsible and self -aware. Second graders come in knowing how to read, which opens up a whole new world that we can build on as we reinforce and improve skills in every subject. It takes a team effort between teachers, students and parents to ensure success for every student. Second grade is an exciting time.
