Welcome to 2nd Grade!

The second grade year is a dynamic and busy year. The children will grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, and academically. At this level the focus is on embedding skills that were learned in EC4 through first grade. New reading, decoding, writing, and math skills continue to be introduced as well. Second graders are still learning to read but are beginning to apply those reading skills to learn new information in the content areas. New knowledge leads to the desire to share information which is done both through verbal and visual presentations. Second grade is also a year of firsts in Faith Formation. Many of the children will be receiving their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in their home parishes. Our curriculum is based on the Standards and benchmarks of the Diocese of St. Petersburg which has also adopted the Common Core Standards. Our day includes not only the core subjects of Religion, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies but specials classes as well. Children participate in Music, Art, Physical Education, Spanish, and Technology. Our activities include whole group, small group and independent work.  However you look at it, it all adds up to an exciting year!
