2nd Grade

Teacher: Sarah Peterson

In 2nd Grade, your child will learn about main idea and details, setting, sequence, and characterization in Reading. It is so important for your child to read at least 15 minutes a night to be a more fluent reader.

In Phonics/ Spelling, they work hand in hand as we will be working on all long vowel patterns and other diphthongs, endings, contractions, compound words, soft c and g words, and more. We take a Spelling test every Friday.

In Language Arts/ Writing, we work on learning capitalization, punctuation, nouns, verbs, adverbs, and adjectives. We also work on putting commas and apostrophes in the right spot.

In Math, we are using a new Common Core series called EnVision where we will be working on different ways to read and write numbers to 1000, work on basic facts through story problems, and learn addition and subtraction 2-digit problems. We also work on addition and subtraction facts using our old series of Saxon Math. Occasionally we will do science and social study units, but I do not take grades on these.
