Welcome to Mrs. Aquino's 2nd Grade Class!
Second grade is a fun and exciting time for your child! Second grade is when most children will feel more confident as students. My goal is to prepare my students for life's choices and challenges. I maintain high expectations and challenge my students to learn, grow and achieve to his/her highest possible potential. I enhance the learning process by fostering an atmosphere of respect, love and dignity.
During the year the second graders will be taught to implement strategies related to problem solving in math. I will extend their educational experience by focusing on increasing fluency and strengthening reading comprehension skills. Second grade is a year of transition in which the students will become more independent thinkers and learners. This will enable them to have the skills needed to achieve success as they move through the upper grades.
