Welcome to 2nd grade at Lake Street School! Students at LSS always strive to show our 4 character expectations. Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Cooperative, and Be Safe. We continue to teach through a Reading and Writing Workshop model. We will learn by using a multitude of fictional and non-fictional books. Second grade authors will write small moment stories, personal narratives, informational books and poems.
Second grade implements a Math Workshop model. Math focuses on developing a strong number sense and problem solving which includes explaining their strategy and thinking. Students are expected to master basic math facts through 20. They will build fact fluency through hands on games and technology.
Science and Social Studies are integrated during the school year to cover topics such as Animals and Habitats, Pilgrims and Native Americans, Map Skills, and Famous People like Martin Luther King Jr. and Johnny Appleseed. Health topics include Personal Safety and Healthy Choices. In addition, some exciting activities include our Apple Day, Thanksgiving Share and 100th Day Celebration. We are looking forward to a wonderful year full of learning!
