Welcome to Second Grade! We will be continuing to learn many new skills this year. This year is a very crucial year in your child's academic development because second grade is the year that students move from learning to read — decoding words using their knowledge of the alphabet — to reading to learn. The books children are expected to master are no longer simple primers but fact-filled texts on the solar system, plants, animals and historical figures. Children who haven’t made the leap to fast, fluent reading begin at this moment to fall behind, and for most of them the gap will continue to grow. So second grade constitutes a critical transition. By working together, we can help your child develop the ability to read to learn and continue to foster a love for reading.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to a year full of academic fun and achievement. You will find helpful resources and web links on this web page.
Meet the Teacher
I graduated from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana with my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching for 6 years. I taught 1st grade for 5 years and this year moved up to 2nd grade and have really enjoyed it. I have a ball being active and outside with my family and dog, Moxie and trying new restaurants.
