Second Grade

Second grade children study myths, fables, folktales, and Native American legends. These are themes that resonate with their growing imaginations. Many stories introduce the children to unique personalities and provide lessons to support the development of character. Literacy studies continue as children begin to work with the elements of a story, the writing process, and the art of form drawing. The four processes of arithmetic are strengthened and developed further with regards to word problems, place value, number patterns, and data gathering and analysis. In science, children explore the world of bees, the life cycle of the salmon, and schoolyard ecology.
