In second grade at East Hardin, students will continue to experience plenty of hands-on learning through interaction with small and whole groups. We strongly encourage and strive to create a love for reading in our students, and they are presented with rich texts that promote higher-level thinking. We also use academics to develop more social development in our students by having them work as a team and learn to become more responsible and considerate of others in the school. Our second grade teachers work one-on-one with students who need extra assistance to meet their goals.
Enhanced Learning & Achievement
We present materials in many various ways to enhance student learning, achievement, and maximize potential. Each student will enjoy using technology, hands-on manipulatives, educational games, and various other learning styles. We strive to work with each student individually to increase their success while accelerating their growth. We continue to incorporate the RTI2 program, which means students are placed in small groups at particular times of the day and worked intensely to help meet Reading and Math goals. We have witnessed tremendous success in our students since implementing this program.
Home to School Connections
Each Friday our 2nd graders bring home the newsletter for the following week. The newsletter keeps families informed of important dates, upcoming breaks, and academic information such as spelling and vocabulary lists. A graded paper folder is sent home weekly for parents to review and discuss with their child. Each 2nd grade teacher uses the Remind app and can be reached via email or by calling the school.
