About 2nd Grade

Second grade is an exciting year at Saint Ann School. Students make the transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn” and they will explore a variety of fiction and nonfiction literature. Students will meet high expectations with Wilsons Phonics, Saxon Math, Writing genre studies, Daily 5 Reading strategies, and Archdiocesan standards-based units for Religion, Science, and Social Studies. They will use technology in the classroom and participate in “hands-on” learning across the subjects. Another important milestone for 2nd grade is preparing for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, and the students will gather as a prayer community several times throughout the day.

Here is a sample schedule of our day:
  • Morning Prayer and Announcements
  • Phonics
  • Morning Meeting
  • Reading
  • Literacy Centers with Guided Reading groups
  • Writer’s Workshop
  • Religion
  • Recess and Lunch
  • Read Aloud
  • Math
  • Science and Social Studies
  • Gym, Music, or Spanish
  • Closing Prayer, Reflections, and Announcements
