    I could be possibly moving to 2nd grade reading for next year. This would be my choice. I currently teach kindergarten where I have been for the last 6 years. Prior to that I spent 4 years in first grade. We will be adopting a new reading curriculum next year so I think thats a good time to move? Anyway I just need input so please just tell me the good the bad the ugly about 2nd grade.

    Second graders are starting to move more from learning to read to reading to learn. I don't teach second, but have worked with the age range in the past. It's one of my favorite ages. They are starting to mature and are able to think a bit more critically, but still very much like their teachers.

    Hopefully someone can give you more in-depth information, but I often think that if I was going to move down grades, second would be what I chose.

    Wishing you good luck in your future career decisions!
