Welcome to 2nd grade

Class of 2027!!


Students will continue to apply earlier standards with greater depth in increasingly more complex texts. Students decode multisyllabic words in context and independent of context by applying common letter-sound correspondences. They comprehend a variety of texts drawing on useful strategies as needed. Students are expected to read aloud grade-level appropriate text with fluency (rate, accuracy, expression, appropriate phrasing) and comprehension. Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the varied structural patterns and features of literature. They read independently for a sustained period of time paraphrasing what the reading was about while maintaining meaning. Students also use comprehension skills to analyze how words, images, graphics, and sounds work together in various forms to impact meaning of different reading genres.

Students develop an understanding of the base-10 place value system and place value concepts. The students' understanding of base-10 place value includes ideas of counting in units and multiples of thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones and a grasp of number relationships, which students demonstrate in a variety of ways. They identify situations in which addition and subtraction are useful to solve problems. Students develop a variety of strategies to use efficient, accurate, and generalizable methods to add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers. They use the relationship between skip counting and equal groups of objects to represent the addition or subtraction of equivalent sets, which builds a strong foundation for multiplication and division. Students use a problem-solving model that incorporates analyzing given information, formulating a plan or strategy, determining a solution, justifying the solution, and evaluating the problem-solving process and the reasonableness of the solution.
