The Second Grade Developmental Screening

During the Second Grade year, each student is individually assessed by an educational support teacher to identify any challenges that might be affecting the student’s progress. Conducted unobtrusively during the school day, the assessment consists of coordination exercises, drawing, and other activities. If any challenges are identified, recommendations are made to the class teacher and the child’s parents, and the Educational Support Group (a committee of educational support and other teachers) chooses the appropriate therapist.


Second Grade Handwork: Crocheting

In second grade crocheting emphasizes one hand instead of two. The balance is different although both hands are busy. It takes a new more intense kind of concentration.

This is another rhythmical, repetitive activity with the hands that strengths the will and brings clarity to the thinking.
