What's New in 2nd Grade?

Current Units of Study

Reading (Teacher's College Reading & Writing Project): 

Accelerating Readers' Growth in Longer Fiction Books

This unit will continue help second graders shore up their word solving muscles, so they’re able to move through the reading process smoothly and can focus on the trickier comprehension work that is expected of them at these higher levels of reading (K/L/M). All of this work requires students to be able to fix up their reading at the point of error quickly.

Writing (Teacher's College Reading & Writing Project): 

Writing About Reading

Students will begin this unit writing letters - work that will be familiar to those who participated in the kindergarten opinion writing unit on persuasive letters. Across the first bend of this unit, students will draft letters about the characters they’ve met in their books, formulating opinions and supporting their ideas, providing reasons, and using details and examples from the test to support their claims. Students will uncover their opinions about more than just the character they are getting to know; students will also be writing about their favorite scenes, illustrations across the text, and lessons learned.

Math (Engage NY): 

Time, Shapes, and Fractions as Equal Parts of Shapes

In this unit, students extend their understanding of part–whole relationships through the lens of geometry.  As students compose and decompose shapes, they begin to develop an understanding of unit fractions as equal parts of a whole. 

Social Studies (NYC Passport): 

Our Community's Geography

In this unit students will learn about New York City and the five boroughs.
