Spotlight on our second grade teachers!

Second grade introduces children to the basic skills of reading and writing; it gives them a general understanding about the world through science, social and math subjects. 
 
Here at Weddington Elementary, we have six amazing teachers that make up our second grade team this school year. Their goals are to make a difference in their students’ lives.
 
Ms. Lunsford’s class is working on mastering the art of writing. They are writing poetry and using everyday objects for inspiration in their poetry. 
Ms. Jackson’s class will be celebrating the holidays by learning about how different cultures celebrate. Ms. Martin’s class is working on their global assignment. Each student chose a country to research and they will present their interesting global facts about their country on December 10th. 
Ms. Madara, Ms. Stoner and Ms. Katon are guiding their students through academic and personal development.
 
Our second-grade teachers are using a combination of different teaching methods, such as oral explanations, visual demonstrations and interactive study tools like games to enable students understand their subjects.
 
B.B. King once stated, “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." Weddington Elementary second graders are learning new and exciting things that no one can take away from them!
