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