Second grade is a big year for student growth in learning. As their reading and math skills improve, students can start making strides toward greater problem-solving skills and begin to build confidence in their knowledge. Because it’s so crucial for students to believe that they can succeed, many Alabama families are embracing the personalized education they receive through K12-powered online school programs.
How does K12-powered second grade in Alabama work?
Eligible Alabama second graders can enjoy the benefits of online learning by enrolling in a tuition-free* K12-powered public school. Within their online school is where students and their families help inform their personalized learning program under the guidance of state-licensed teachers. Students attend online class sessions with their teachers and access daily coursework using K12’s interactive curriculum. Because the curriculum is web-based, students can log in to school from any computer that is connected to the internet, so education becomes more about active learning, no matter the place.
Second grade students also have the opportunity to learn offline with the help and supervision of their Learning Coach—usually a parent or other responsible adult. The Learning Coach role is an important one, which includes helping guide students through the coursework and other tasks related to school, such as reading and replying to emails from teachers and logging attendance. Learning Coaches of second graders should plan to devote 4 to 6 hours each school day to fulfilling these responsibilities.
Students at K12-powered schools often have opportunities to participate in school-sponsored outings and events as well, which gives them a chance to make friends and connect with their school community.
The K12 second grade curriculum uses fun graphics, learning tools, and games to engage students in learning core concepts such as math, science, history, and language arts as well as art and music. In addition to online lessons, students spend time using hands-on education materials such as printed books, math manipulatives, and art supplies.**
The curriculum is engaging, robust, and integrated so that your student may read a book about the same time period as the music or history they’re studying, giving your student a more thorough understanding of each subject. K12 courses in the early grades provide a solid foundation for future studies.
