Second Grade Information
Our second grade studentshave been working on building fluency and
Reading and rereading are the best things
they can be doing right now !
Second graders continue to grow to become successful independent readers, gaining clear understanding of what they read.
Phonics skills are continually reviewed. Students will practice recognizing the various sounds and associate the spelling pattern associated with those sounds. Variant sounds and spelling are introduced as the year progresses.
Now that text has become more expanded, the students need to focus on comprehending the text that they read. Some of the comprehension skills that are addressed are main idea, character traits, cause and effect, sequencing, summarizing, and fact/opinion.
