Reading

During the year we explore several different units of study.  Within each unit we will read a variety of literature pieces.  Our classroom is rich with reading.  Our skills will develop as our love for reading increases through both self selected and teacher selected stories.

 

Writing

During the year we explore several different units of study.  Within each unit we will learn and practice many different types of writing.  Everything from friendly letters to reports, memoirs to non-fiction, and expository to persuasive.

Math

Math in 2nd grade is all about numbers to 1,000.  1,000!  We will read them, write them, use them to tell time, count money, measure, add and subtract, and even multiply!

 

Social Studies

Throughout the year, intertwined within our Reading and Writing Units, we will learn about maps, time-lines, our country's heritage and important symbols, our money, wants versus needs, and so much more.

Science

Alternating with Social Studies, and intertwined within our Reading and Writing Units, we will learn about the Inquiry Process, Life Science, Physical Science, Earth and Space.

 

Word Study

Throughout the year we will develop our skills as good spellers.  This will help us with our reading and writing skills as well!  We will learn about different word study patterns to  help us understand how to spell large, multi-syllabic words.
