2nd grade's the best

I made the switch this year and I love it. I taught third for 2 years then went to 2nd. At first I had a hard time dealing with how needy they were and still so young but I just set up a classroom climate that works for me. I started teaching them how to be patient and not follow me around the room. They have to try by themselves first and they learned that sometimes they will work together but other times they work independently and try their best. I set high expectations for my students knowing what they will need in 3rd grade.
I really liked the curriculum also and helped them prepare for 3rd. I noticed where they are some big gaps between 2nd and 3rd grade learning too. I think 2nd is pretty cool and I hope you enjoy it!
