Welcome to Second Grade
Second Grade introduces a new level of academic challenge for learners at Saylesville Elementary School. Students take many important steps as they begin to apply new academic skills to more diverse subjects.
Second grade is time of rapid scholastic growth, when learners develop independence and responsibility for their learning and begin to understand how their work and ideas contribute to their environment.
The Power of Words
Young readers begin to experience books with a fluency that allows their minds to see and construct new meaning from words on a page. They also begin understand how writers use words and the rules that govern that usage. That new understanding can be seen in their own writing, as second graders go from writing one page ideas about the “self,” to broader stories, several pages long.
