How lucky you are to be in 2nd grade at Dutch Hill! In science we start our year learning about air and weather through many exciting, hands on experiments. We end the year observing solids and liquids and try answering the tough question: “Is toothpaste a solid or a liquid?” During social studies we spend the year learning about our community. We focus on types of communities and how to be a good citizen in your community. There are many math concepts to learn about. The most important will be math fact fluency and learning how to add and subtract without borrowing. Our focus in reading is fluency and comprehension skills. Finally, our goal in writing for second graders is to develop their ideas using sentence fluency and proper conventions. Get ready for a fun-filled year full of learning!
