In second grade we concentrate on a balanced approach to literacy. We do this by meeting in guided reading groups to focus on fluency, accuracy, comprehension, and establishing vocabulary. Students at this age enjoy independent activities and are encouraged to engage in self-selected literacy exercises. These activities also include writing which follows the writing process.
In Science we study the monarch butterfly and watch God's miracle as it goes through each stage right in our classroom. Students enjoy learning new concepts so we also study penguins. We conclude our unit with "Penguin Day" where students can enjoy all they have learned.
