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.
