At this age, children still have some of the imaginative consciousness of early childhood, but are becoming more aware of themselves and others. Solid bases continue to be laid on three primary fronts: language arts and the ongoing preparation toward strong reading and writing skills; arithmetic through solid acquisition of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and place value; and nature stories providing the basis for later studies in science and geography.
Second-graders begin to see that there are choices to be made in life. They see the consequences experienced by the animals in the fables they study as well as those experienced by saints and other exemplary human beings in stories and legends.
