2nd Grade - Kathy Jackson

Aloha and Welcome to Second Grade! Come explore and learn!

Wow! This school year is so quickly coming to an end! All students have worked so hard and are progressing in their explorative journey through second grade in preparation for entering 3rd grade! In math, we will be working on measuement--both standard (inches/feet/yards) as well as the metric system! We end the year with enhancing understanding and knowledge of Geometry. In reading/language/grammar, we continue to build on our reading skills and ability to analyze and comprehend fictional and expository writings. We will increase our understanding of written language--parts of speech and sentence structure, which, in turn, improves writing skills. We continue working on spelling patterns and phonics skills. We also continue and complete our fauna research reports. In science--we have begun work on life cycles and the needs of fauna and flora for them to survive. In social studies, we are working on reading and understanding maps. Oh yes, a very busy final weeks of school!  Yes, another very busy month!
