    Welcome to second grade!  This will be an exciting year for your child!  We work hard and you will be amazed at the progress your child makes throughout the year!  If you ever have any questions about what happens in the classroom, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Agenda books will come home daily and they are a wonderful way to communicate with me.

  • Reading Reading


    The class this year will be using a reading program called Ready Gen....I am very excited about it and more information will be coming!  Read, read, read!


    It is a great idea to have your child ready daily for about 15-20 minutes.  




  • Math

    This year the class will be learning from the CCLS aligned program called My Math.  




  • Fact Practice


    We practice our facts to increase fluency and speed.  Any practice you can do at home would greatly benefit your second grader!  Flash cards can be picked up at most dollar stores!


    Students will be working with XtraMath.com, which is a fact practice computer site.  Your child will be completing their work on this twice a week.  A letter will be coming home soon to tell you how you can access it at home.

  • Spelling

        Your child will be using the Words Their Way spelling program in second grade.  Formal spelling will be starting in a few weeks, with information to follow!

         Your child will be bringing home a spelling word list that they are to make part of their homework routine.  On Friday, your child will be given a spelling test of 10 words chosen at random....
