  • Curriculum


    Reading
    Second graders want to read, listen to, and talk about a wide range of books including chapter books, informational books, and poems. These students expect what they read to make sense. They absorb language and ideas as they read. At this stage, they are skillful and confident infusing word attack skills to make predictions about words and meaning.They are beginning to read silently for extended periods of time.

    Writing
    Second grade students write for pleasure, for recording observations and experiences, and for conveying information. They write several sentences on one topic. Their writing has a clear purpose, with some detail, and with a sense of story. They understand that text can be changed and are beginning to revise and edit. They use more standard spelling than “temporary” phonetic spelling.

    Mathematics
    The mathematics curriculum is organized into five strands:
    (1) number and operations; (2) measurement; (3) geometry; (4) data analysis and probability; and, (5) algebra. Problem-solving strategies are embedded into each of the 5 strands.

    At the second grade level, students will demonstrate a greater consistency than first grade children in applying mathematical knowledge and processes. However, while second grade students can do much more than has been expected of them in the past, it is important to recognize that they still learn best by exploring with manipulatives.

    Social Studies
    Second graders continue to use and reinforce skills introduced in kindergarten and first grade. They examine a variety of neighborhoods and recognize the multiple roles of individuals and families. The local government is studied.

    Science
    The focus for second grade students is analyzing collected data over a period of time to make predictions and understand changes. Science Concepts: animal life cycles, changes in weather, changes in properties of matter, sound

    Art/Music

    Health/PE
    The Healthful Living Education program promotes behaviors that contribute to a healthful life-style and improved quality of life for all students. The Healthful Living Education portions of the NC Standard Course of Study support and reinforce the goals and objectives of its two major components—health education and physical education.
