Second Grade

Second grade is an active grade, and we would like to acquaint you with our course of study. We will be making a transition from manuscript or printing to cursive writing. In math the skills of carrying and borrowing will be introduced, and the addition and subtraction facts must be mastered. We will work with the students in the areas of reading, creative writing and English, spelling, social studies, science, and health. Report card grades will be given in reading, language arts (English), math, spelling, and handwriting. Every week there will be a classroom newsletter listing the spelling words, reading vocabulary words, homework assignments, tests and test dates, and announcements.

As you can see, second grade will be a productive year in your child’s school experience. Therefore, it is extremely important for every student to get off to a good start! Of utmost importance is good attendance, completion of assigned classroom work, the return of all homework, and the development of good listening, study, and work habits.
