Welcome to second grade! I hope your child has a wonderful year learning to read!

We will have spelling tests and vocabulary tests . Spelling tests are on Friday, and Vocabulary tests are on Monday.

  

   Reading Please make sure your child can read all vocabulary words. Be sure to practice the Spelling words for the tests on Fridays.

 Science skills include inquiry skills, use of technology, forces and motion, sound and light, and Earth environment and weather.

 

  Social Studies skills include understanding cultures, geography, cardinal directions, citizenship, and major events in American History.

We also focus on writing, beginning with sentence structure and advancing to writing paragraphs correctly.

 

Please make sure your child has a folder each day.This is a very important responsibility. 

We use the folders to send home important papers along with graded papers. I expect each child to have one every day.
