Very Social

Iíve taught 2nd grade for 27 years... They are very social. They make friends easily and for the most part, if introduced and enforced work together well in small groups. Have activities that they can learn to manipulate easily. After teaching first grade youíll know that they push the rules. Have your expectations and donít back down. Be firm but fair.

I love working with this age group. They love you and still think you know better than anyone else. Make mistakes often so that they see that itís ok to mess up. They think that they know more than me sometimes. I make a big deal about mistakes are ok. I teach math and we live by the motto:

M-mistakes
A-allow
T-thinking to
H-happen

I hope this helps.
