Successful in Second
Each grade level is important in your child's academic career for different reasons. In first grade your child's learning is heavily concentrated on phonics and how to read. In second grade, the concentration shifts from learning how to read to reading to learn. Our goal for reading in 2nd grade is that students will be able to read and pull information from their text. Second grade math will build off of first grade skills and go into more details. For example, in first grade students should have mastered basic addition skills so that in 2nd grade we can move into double digit addition with and without regrouping.
I am posting a link I found to give you an idea on what to expect in 2nd grade. Although not all of this may apply the information can be beneficial resource for you.
