Welcome to St. Paul 2nd Grade

In Second Grade the students are continuing to develop as good readers and writers. Parents will notice continual improvement throughout the school year. The sharing of books and reading and writing at home will guarantee a successful year of LANUAGE ARTS.
 
In MATH the children are expected to be working to memorize addition and subtraction combinations to 20.  Home practice is essential for success.  We use the Envision Math Program, which has been developed in compliance with the Common Core Standards for Math.  The program presents addition and subtraction operations in ways designed to make the children think carefully as they solve problems.  The supplementary Simple Solutions Math Program reinforces the concepts presented in class.
            
In RELIGION 2nd graders learn about the life of Jesus the Good Shepherd.  They read about the disciples and the beginning of His Church.  The Sacraments are introduced as we look forward to preparing for the students for thier First Reconciliation and their First Holy Communion.  They will enjoy attending all- school masses with their 8th grade prayer partners and anticipatie special activities with them as the year progresses.
 
We ask that parents carefully check their child’s “Take-Home Folder” each school night.  This folder often contains communications from the teacher. 

We look forward to working with you all year, and we thank you in advance for all the help and support we know you will provide.
