second grade experience
Students in second grade explore the world around them in a deeper manner. They begin to mature in their understanding of a growth mindset: that growth is gained through taking risks, embracing mistakes, and persevering through challenges. It is a classroom where children are encouraged to explain their thinking in multiple ways, and in doing so are encouraged to seek deeper learning opportunities in meaningful ways. It is a place where friendship dynamics are explored more extensively, and where students begin to identify with their peers and their role within the classroom.
