Grade 2

In second grade our language arts focus is reading comprehension, decoding, and comparing/contrasting two data sources, fictional/nonfictional skills.  Writing focuses on spelling, composition, and grammar.

In math, addition and subtraction facts through 20 are mastered with regrouping introduced.  Students practice telling time, using money, graphing, measurement, place value and spatial awareness skills.

Science and social studies are integrated with other areas of the curriculum.  Grade two topics include:  map and globe study, people in our history, soil and plants, geology, force and motion, and nutrition.

Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled twice during the year, December and March to discuss your child's growth and progress.

We incorporate the Responsive Classroom model in grade two.  Social and academic curricula are blended throughout the school day.

We strive to help students create a sense of community and belonging.
