Second Grade



Second grade is proud to announce that rehearsals are going well for our SPRING MUSICAL which focuses on our HARMONY theme.  As you know, your student has been practicing diligently at school, and we hope you support them at home with continued practice to make this project a huge success.


In Language Arts, we will be studying and creating many types of interesting poems including Haiku, Cinquain, Acrostic, Limerick, Sensory and Shape Poems.  We will be participating in Reader's Theatre as well to improve our fluency.  Please continue to read as often as you can with your second grader. 


In math class we will start work on arrays and fractions, preparing your student for third grade.  Please continue to work on your math facts at home.  Math Fact Fluency is an important part of problem solving. 


Finally our science unit is on nutrition.  Students will learn the basics of meal planning and healthy eating.


At home, students can continue to work on their reading and math skills through the use of our computer based programs, iReady and Lexia.  Students love to see their personal growth through the completion of these lessons.  


Thank you for your continued support,
