Welcome to Second Grade

Welcome to second grade! This is the year of my little “Souls On Fire”! We will have a busy and exciting year.

Here at Holy Rosary parish school, Catholic students receive two sacraments: Reconciliation and First Eucharist. We will have our First Reconciliation on Saturday, December 5 at 9:30AM. A parent meeting will be held in the church hall on Sunday, October 25 at 10AM.

Our reading theme is Silly Stories and yes they are. We have higher-level thinking questions we use in discussions to engage students in what we are reading. When we read, we write. When we write, we read to others to get good ideas on how to improve our writing. We are already writing friendly letters.

We do science investigations and learn about solids and liquids, do some experiments of choice from our Sciencing ®kits and have some STEM projects as well.

We are in the third year of our Singapore math program where kids learn how to solve real-world math problems using manipulatives, making models and doing Enrichment work. There will be a math night on Tuesday, October 6th from 6:30-8:30PM where you can do math games, learn about bar models and resources available for families via the Think Central website.
