Welcome to 2nd Grade!
I am so excited to begin a new year with your children. We will learn, discover, and grow in God's love this year! Here are a few highlights of the curriculum this quarter:
In Religion, we will learn about saints, prayer, and the sacrament of Baptism.
Saxon Phonics is a rigorous and thorough phonics instruction program. We will become better readers and writers this year!
Our Journeys Reading series includes many stories, both fiction and non-fiction.
Step Up to Writing was new to us last year, and we will learn to write quality paragraphs this quarter.
My Math is the math series we will use, along with Simple Solutions for spiral review. We will focus on number sense and addition strategies this quarter
Nancy Larson science will have us experimenting with matter.
In Social Studies we will learn about being good citizens and how to read maps.
