Second Grade
Orientation
September 4, 2012
I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child's mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher - the tools she used
Were book, music, and art.
The other, a parent, worked with a guiding
hand
And a gentle, loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled with touch
That was careful, deft and sure.
While the parents labored by his side
And polished and smoothed it o'er.
And when at last their work was done
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For things they had molded into the child
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed
If each had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school.
And behind the teacher, the home
Reagan “Rigor”
•Quality, NOT Quantity
•Deep immersion
•Complex, challenging
•In order to move our students
toward more challenging work,
we must provide scaffolding to
support them as they learn.
