Second Grade Fun !

Kiawah Native Americans

Did you know that there was once a tribe of Native Americans indigenous to modern Kiawah Island? Well, Second Grade students at TCS are learning their riveting tales of celebrations and sorrow. Students are examining the six main elements of this tribe’s culture: food, shelter, people, celebrations, transportation, and clothing. We will be delving into this rich history over the next few weeks, analyzing how they lived off the land and what resources were used in the Lowcountry around the 17th century. 


This week readers challenged themselves to find passages within their fiction reading and then read examples with fluency. They partnered together to see if they could visualize a movie in their minds as their partner reads the passage from the story aloud.

Purposeful Movement

This week in Purposeful Movement scholars looked at a model of the brain and learned about how the brain controls our emotions and ways to turn those emotions into energy. Scholars then completed a fun filled obstacle course that involved jumping, shuffling, bear crawling and crab walks. Students set goals while jumping rope and even participated in a class jump rope session.
