Second Grade

Second Grade Philosophy of Education

My teaching philosophy reflects the idea that every person in the classroom is a teacher and all can learn from the other. Thus, I like group projects, shared reports and creative representations of material. I use manipulatives, visual aids and technology first when teaching a math concept and end the lesson with worksheets or written evidence of mastery. Daily we explore various language arts material during rotating reading groups.  My classroom encourages students to explore different subject related centers and invites them  to find answers to their own questions.

A complete Class Syllabus is available to each student and parent on Schoology which is password protected.
