Expectations in Second Grade

Second grade is a year of addvancement. The students will take what they have learned in first grade and expand their knowledge with the tools they are given to succeed. We continue to learn vowel sounds, math, social studies, and science. We have some exploration time and more seat work. Small groups and partner work is integrated into the day. I want to make the learning atomosphere as fun as I can, but I also know that it has to be in a structured way. I expect the kids to always be doing their best. Our classroom is like a team. We all need to work together to make this a great learning atmosphere.
