2nd Grade

In 2nd grade we develop our own points of view, learn to take perspective and stretch our empathy muscle.  Reading, writing and problem solving begin to apply to all subject areas, like science and history. We love to read in 2nd grade!  And playing games together is something we practice.  Turn taking, being a good sport and giving 100% effort... when our bodies are healthy, our minds can learn.
