Natural science is a big part of the 2nd grade curriculum. Students learn about plants, animals and ecosystems. They also take bi-monthly field trips to Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center for more hands-on, place-based learning. 2nd graders use the Eureka program for their math curriculum. They learn phonics skills and reading through Fundations. 2nd graders also use the Social Thinking curriculum as well as mindfulness activities to help learn ways to regulate stress and control their impulses.
