Preparation

The education I received at SJNRCS prepared me for a life of learning... The interest and care of my teachers fostered a love of learning which I still have today. I feel the teachers are focused on educating every student and helping them become the best they can be.

Religion

A central theme of our Grade 2 year is that the Catholic Church celebrates the faith through the sacraments. Through Baptism, we became members of God’s family.  This year is highlighted by the gift of forgiveness our children receive with their First Reconciliation.  We are further united with Christ as they receive their First Eucharist.  Through the year we focus on the Holy Spirit helping us pray and make good decisions, as we remember that God loves us even when we hurt others.  Children finish the year knowing that they are truly receiving the body and blood of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Language Arts & Reading

The focus in Grade 2 is on increasing reading fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.    The students learn to distinguish cause and effect relationships.  Through the year they will respond to literal, inferential, and evaluative questions about literature.   In addition to daily writing prompts, students, participate in a Writing Lab once a week where they apply phonetic strategies to spell words, and apply rules of punctuation and grammar.  Using inflection when speaking and reading is emphasized.  Listening and recalling sequences of events and details occurs regularly.

Mathematics

Solving multi-step real world problems is at the core of Grade 2 Math.   Students will be able to skip count to 1000 by 5’s, 10s, and 100’s; read and write numbers to the 10,000 place; add and subtract within 1,000, applying “carrying” and “borrowing” strategies,  calculate elapsed time, count back money change from $10.00; and work with geometry and measurement.

Science

Students use hands on learning with Earth and Space Science, Life Science, and Physical Science.  Once a week they have Science Enrichment with the Middle School Science teacher exploring subjects in depth in the Science lab.

Social Studies

Our Christian obligation to care for the poor, hungry, and aging is woven through our studies of history and famous historical individuals.  We also study geography and government.

Technology

Students have access to two separate computer labs.  Technology is integrated into all content area.

Homework

Second-grade students are expected to read 20 minutes every night.  In addition, they have about 15-20 minutes of written homework to reinforce skills.

Assessment

A progress report and report card are issued four times during the year at the middle and end of each quarter respectively to inform parents of their child’s progress. In addition, weekly grades are available on the RenWeb Parents Portal.
