Second Grade is full of exciting topics! This year, we will continue using Math in Focus. We will cover concepts such as place value, addition, subtraction, bar models, multiplication, money, fractions, time and measurement.
In language arts, we will read stories from the Journeys book and complete several novel studies. We will focus on phonics, fluency, prediction, inference, sequence, structure, and so much more. We will learn grammar in the context of the novels we read and the stories and essays we write. Our writing program will emphasize writing in a way that is meaningful and relevant to our class. We will write short responses to books or information learned, as well as dialogue journals, narratives, research reports, and persuasive essays.
In science, we will cover topics such as the scientific process, matter, landforms and earth changes, habitats and ecosystems, and plant and animal needs. In class we will participate in STEAM activities and in the spring you will be able to showcase your talents at the Knowledge Fair.
In social studies, we will use TCI. We will cover topics such as communities, maps, geography, the environment, and citizenship. We will complete several projects throughout the year to share with the class.
There is so much happening this year! I'm looking forward to helping you all become the best you can be!
