Second-grade is an exciting grade at Crawford! Field trips taken include a visit to historic Arkansas in Little Rock, Lake Dardanelle State Park in Russellville, and Christmas caroling around town. One of our favorite projects in second-grade is our economics unit. During our economics unit, students work in groups to design, create, and sell products with a fixed budget, in a mini second-grade market.
Second-grade is a wonderful year of growth and transition. Students move from “learning to read” to “reading to learn”. A completely new world opens to them as they use their new reading skills to discover many new and exciting things. It is a joy to watch as they discover that the world is big and full of possibilities.
