During second grade, students continue to develop their reading, vocabulary, grammar skills, word identification skills and read increasingly difficult texts with greater ease and fluency. They are exploring the world around them, connecting visuals with text, context clues, and organizing thoughts into sentences.
Students are exploring the world around them, learning how to make a positive impact in their community, becoming super citizens. This is a year of exploration and growth, setting students up for success as academics become more challenging. The curriculum provides repeated exposure to mathematical concepts and skills to increase mastery. Students learn to solve word problems with money and are exposed to geometry and fraction concepts by portioning shapes. They continue hands-on learning of plants, by cultivating the school garden and end 2nd grade by being introduced to earth and space science. Personalized teaching in a small, interactive classroom provides a loving and safe environment where students thrive.
