– To Infinity and Beyond –
In Second Grade, no subject is untouched—Language Arts, Arithmetic, History, Science/Health, Art, and Bible are explored on a daily basis. Second grade takes the basics from first grade and continues to build on them, applying knowledge on a higher level. Coordinated with thorough instruction in phonics, the foundational grammar concepts of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, word usage, and sentence analysis are now introduced in an age-appropriate way. Coordinated with a foundation of essential facts, arithmetic introduces estimation, rounding, metric measures, fractions, and exercises on determining change. Computer skills are also continued to build computer literacy.
