Welcome to 2nd grade! This year, your child will be introduced to many new concepts. For example, in Math, students will be introduced to new concepts such as addition and subtraction with regrouping, multiplication (which we call repeated addition), division, counting money and geometry. In Science, we will learn concepts such as the water cycle, the weather (& its tools), moon phases and even some geology. You would be surprised at the amount of writing that is required in 2nd grade as well. So, keep an adequate amount of pencils at home. Students will learn about technology. Last reminder: We ask our students to be reading at least 20 minutes every night, because reading fluency and vocabulary development is necessary in 2nd, as well as the years to come, and will ensure your child's success in school.
