Second Grade

Grade Level Goals:

  • By the end of the 2019-2020 school year, 70% of second graders will meet the benchmark goal on their DIBELS end of the year composite score.
  • By the end of the 2019-2020 school year, 75% of second graders will score 80% or higher on the end of the year district math assessment. 

Curriculum:

All second graders are using an aligned curriculum in each subject area to ensure that they are learning the Louisiana State Standards. The following curriculum are used:

  • Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) is a research-based, comprehensive English Language Arts (ELA) program that integrates reading, language, writing, speaking, and listening and encompasses the five components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension).
  • Eureka Math is used for mathematics
  • FOSS is used for science

grade level news:

For the 2nd nine weeks our second graders will continue to soar! In ELA, our students are learning about spelling alternatives for vowel sounds. We are also reading the student reader "Kids Excel." Students will also continue to focus on capitalization, quotation marks, and punctuation marks as they practice writing their own personal narratives. Our students are building on their Knowledge with Greek Myths in our reading lessons.

 In math, students are focusing on addition and subtraction within 200 and word problems to 100. We are also working on math fluency with addition and subtraction problems up to 20. Students are expected to complete at least 24 out of 30 problems within 90 seconds by the end of the year. Please have your child practice daily to increase speed and accuracy with the addition and subtraction problems. 

In Social Studies we are learning about American History and important American Symbols
