Second grade is very busy! Our language arts focus is reading fluency, comprehension, and answering questions using evidence from the text. We work on fluent communication such as writing complete sentences, compound sentences, paragraphs, journal assignments, and long responses that include grade-level expected language mechanics.
Additionally, we are deepening our understanding of how to apply varied mathematical strategies to problem solve when working with basic facts, place value, two and three-digit addition and subtraction, geometry and patterns, measurement, and money and time. In social studies we will be learning about America’s past, geography, economics, and civics. Our science curriculum will cover changing matter, recycling, living things, life cycles, energy, forces and motion, magnetism, and human body.
