Welcome to Second Grade!
I am so excited to be a part of your child's journey this year, as we discover what it means to be chosen by God and helping each other get to Heaven. Here is a sample of our learning for 1st quarter:
In Religion, we will learn about the many gifts God has prepared for us through creation and the Sacraments. We will learn that prayer is our way to talk to God, and that our friends the saints are holy men and women who lived virtuous and loving lives on earth.
In Reading, we will learn about making connections, predictions, and inferences. We will detail the sequence of stories, as well as identify problem and solution. We will be learning how to be confident in our reading skills.
In Phonics, we will review many first grade skills, such as short and long vowels, blends and digraphs. We will focus on using these skills to improve our spelling.
In Language, we will learn about nouns, verbs, adjectives, ABC order and contractions. We will focus on writing in complete sentences and the punctuation used with different types of sentences.
In Social Studies, we will learn about citizenship and what makes a community special. We will also be starting our Economics unit.
In Math, we will be learning about addition & subtraction concepts. We will be using a variety of strategies to help us add & subtract. We will then move on to our place value unit.
