Second Grade

Participating in Writing Workshops, learning about citizenship, researching and performing about the life of a famous changemaker – these are just a few of the highlights of second grade at Community.Second grade emphasizes expanding and refining skills in the area of reading – moving toward reading to learn versus learning to read. Children work more independently, as well as in cooperative group settings. Writing Workshop is a regular activity as children do research, write reports, and create their own stories. Celebrations of Writing are held during the year, where children share their work orally with parents and classmates. Mathematics instruction further secures number sense and strategies for problem solving. Children begin to use bar models as they work in the Math in Focus program. Instructional technology skills are furthered through the use of iPads and high-quality apps. Social studies themes throughout the year include citizenship, famous world contributors, and “What Makes a Community?”
