All About Second Grade

What an exciting grade! We learn about so many different things. We work extremely hard to develop excellent reading through the phonics program and the development of reading strategies throughout our reading. By integrating these reading strategies throughout all our subjects, second graders are beginning to be successful independent readers.

In science, we are learning how to think like scientists! We are developing the skills that scientists use in their work. We are learning how to observe, measure, compare, classify, make models, infer, communicate, put things in order, predict, investigate and draw conclusions. Our beautiful science lab enables us to have the perfect working environment to develop all these skills. We are learning to write observations and complete experiments in our science journals. Our technology enables us to complete our learning with information right at our fingertips.

We are really developing into excellent writers. We are learning writing skills that can help your child become a better writer. The types of writing we will be focusing on are: writing complete sentences, personal stories, friendly letters, paragraphs that describes, story, and how- to paragraphs. We are displaying our writings in our journals. What a treasure you will have at the end of the year.

Our Math program is a success-oriented program that enables all children to develop a solid foundation in the language and basic concepts of all areas of mathematics. Through this program, the child develops competence and confidence in math concepts.

As you can see, second graders are very busy learning strategies and information that will enable them to become life-long learners. Our goal is to develop children that are eager to learn because learning is so much fun!
