Second graders have been working so hard to build their foundational reading skills with fiction books! Our next reading unit teaches students how to read with more fluency and expression! While your child reads at home, prompt them to look at feelings and dialogue tags to help them sound like the character! Continue to use Raz-kids and visit the public library to find “just right” books of interest!


We recently finished our fiction writing unit and are now starting our next unit on poetry! Second graders will have the chance to explore poetry with creative topics by capturing what they notice and feel on the page. Students will pay close attention to words, images, rhythm, and sound.

We are continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills! Second graders are beginning our 6th math chapter on 3-digit addition and subtraction with and without regrouping! Students will learn a variety of strategies to help them solve problems! Please continue to review the rules to regrouping at home.

Science/Social Studies

In Science, second graders have been so busy working on describing the properties of matter! In Social Studies, students are learning all about influential people who made a difference in the world (like Martin Luther King Jr!)
