In second grade, our focus in reading shifts to building stamina and reading for meaning. Students will learn to write personal narratives, opinion pieces, and non-fiction reports. In math, we will work with numbers up to 1,000 and learners will gain a solid understanding of place value. We will explore pebbles and sand, solids and liquids, and insects and plants in science. We will learn about geography and cultures from around the world in social studies.
At the Glover School, we are preparing all students to be tuneful, “beat”ful and artful musicians for life. Music class meets twice a week for 45 minutes at a time. In music class, while providing joyful and community-building experiences, we also lay a foundation for music literacy. Students have opportunities to express ideas and emotions in music, and at the same time develop skills and knowledge. We sing, dance, create, play small percussion instruments and respond to music while learning the musical language. Please feel free to reach out at any time with questions or concerns you may have. It is such a pleasure to make music with our students!
