Grade 2

Welcome to Grade 2! Your child continues to build on experiences from Kindergarten and Grade 1. As students more easily decode text, they continue to work on fluency and expression during oral reading. Additionally, students focus on comprehension of stories as they explore them from different perspectives and connected to various genres. Students also write for different purposes as they continue to choose topics in our writing workshop. Second graders make sense of math as they count coins, learn about shapes, and explore place value. The children also explore various aspects of science as they study matter, nutrition, soil, and plants. In Social Studies, students explore current events through the use of Scholastic News. Additional topics include friendship, cooperation, and citizenship. It is an exciting year of learning together!
