Welcome to Second Grade! This is a very special year as students make great strides toward independence. Second grade is a bridge between primary and intermediate where higher level thinking and questioning skills develop and create even more curiosity about the world.
Students take ownership of their reading and use it as a vehicle to understand themselves and their world. Further, they will learn to respond to their reading through the writing process and will write using a variety of genres. Science topics include weather, physics, the moon, and plants and animals. In Social Studies, second graders practice the skills needed for citizenship in a healthy community. Math extends to include more sophisticated problem solving strategies. We as a second grade team hope that you find this year as exciting as we do!
