Second Grade

2nd Grade

Students in Second Grade transition from reading smaller units, such as sound-by-sound, to word-by-word or sentence-by sentence. Students spend some time on foundational skills, such as phonics and word analysis, but spend a substantial amount of the reading block on developing vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and inquiry skills. Students expand their writing, spelling, and grammar skills. Students deepen their comprehension by enabling them to apply the skills they are learning through texts and hands on projects.



Foundational Skills focuses on phonics and decoding as well as word analysis.

Reading and Responding addresses comprehension strategies, vocabulary, fluency, and Inquiry. Language Arts contains the writing process; penmanship; grammar, usage, and mechanics; and spelling.
