My Class2nd Grade

Welcome!  Mrs. Hochstettler and Mrs. Oaks are thrilled to be teaching your second grader. 

In second grade, students build on the skills that are introduced and developed in first grade. Reading and vocabulary skills are more advanced. Accelerated Reader is introduced to challenge and foster independence. Students eagerly await the second semester of school when cursive writing is taught. Paragraph writing will continue with students learning to develop five paragraph essays. In Math, students will learn to add and subtract using regrouping. We will continue to master basic facts to 18 using a program called Rocket Math. Second graders will begin to learn keyboarding in the computer lab, as well as using a variety of technology in all subjects.
