We use the Harcourt Brace series for whole group instruction.  Skills they are expected to know by the end of second grade include:  fluency, comprehension, phonemic awareness, vocabulary mastery, and phonics skills.  It is our goal to foster the love of reading.  



During the year we cover addition and subtraction strategies, computation, problem solving, patterns and place value, double-digit addition and subtraction without regrouping, timed addition and subtraction facts to 18, measurement, probability, triple digit addition and subtraction, plus an introduction to multiplication.



Students are encouraged and instructed to write using the six traits (Organization, Ideas, Voice, Fluency, Word Choice, and Conventions) on a daily basis.  Each quarter students add to their writing portfolio, which travels from grade to grade with them. 



Recently, brand new curriculum objectives were initiated in Social Studies.  Some of our units include: patriot symbols, the westward movement, ancient civilizations, China, and more.  Our goal is to introduce this subject matter.  In science, mini-thematic units are taught throughout the year, and the three main District units deal with weather, matter, and a unit called "Breath, Blood, and Guts".  And, finally, for health, we focus on manners, eating healthy, staying fit, and more.




Students learn to extend and apply their learning in weekly computer lab lessons, during Media Center class, and through classroom use.
