QUICK LINKS

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 3rd nine weeks our second graders will continue to soar! In ELA, our students are continuing to learning about spelling alternatives for vowel sounds and adding to our spelling trees. We are also reading the student reader "Sir Gus.” Students are learning to identify and  use adjectives in their writings. In Knowledge we are wrapping up our Insect theme and we will soon explore The U.S. Civil War in our reading lessons.

 In math, students are working with Module 6 that lays the  foundation for multiplication and division in Grade 3. Students will be introduced to the formation of equal groups and arrays.

We are also continuing to  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 Government and being a good citizen.
