Elementary School2nd Grade

2nd grade reading time

Second grade is an important year for children, when they are able to understand more complex concepts and begin to develop their own passions and interests.

Children take concrete knowledge and skills and create new meaning through reading, writing, and exploring.


Students continue their use of the Fountas & Pinnell language arts program.

The program emphasizes word study, phonics, and spelling through the literature texts studied.

Students are taught to not only think about the text but also beyond the text.

Through the use of high-quality literature and leveled reading books, each students’ achievement can be fostered and measured to maximize their potential.

Using Singapore Math, second grade focuses on numbers to 1000, addition and subtraction with regrouping, multiplication and division conceptions, fractions, and geometry concepts.
In science, second graders further their understanding of the scientific process through more advanced units of study in weather, physics topics, living things on earth, and human bodies. Concepts and content of high interest are explored.

In social studies, units of high interest in civics, geography, and economics are the focus of the year. Children work collaboratively on special projects and explore the city of Baltimore by going on field trips.

Special area teachers in Music, Spanish, Religion, and Library round out the second grade program.
