We thoroughly enjoy seeing our children grow academically and socially throughout the year. Some of the highlights of our year include study of habitats culminating with the creation of habitat dioramas, our annual trip to the Nutcracker Ballet, our author study of Jan Brett, our Read Across America Week which focuses on a literary study of mysteries, and our county-wide Fun Fitness Day. At the end of the year, we have a unit study that includes the rich history and symbols of our great state, Tennessee. As the study concludes students take part in a celebrate Tennessee day.
We believe making learning more fun and obtainable is crucial for our second graders. Over the last several years we have used iPads, trade books provided by Reading is Fundamental, math manipulatives, computers, the Accelerated Reader Program, PowerPoint Presentations, learning games, and many educational websites to enhance the learning experience of our second graders at Northside.
