The second grade program at Caze centers on a core curriculum of
subjects to ready students for real world experiences. Our second grade
teachers work diligently to provide differentiated instruction to ensure
success for every student.
In second grade we are providing data driven instruction by using
EVSC curriculum maps, Career and College Readiness Standards, and
Second graders continue their literally skills through Readers
Workshop, small-group instruction, reading notebooks, technology, and
Your child will receive 90 minutes of daily instruction thorough the
Workshop model, including mini lessons focusing on comprehension skills,
independent reading at their own level, and phonics instruction.
We also follow the Math Workshop model using mini lessons, math
centers with small group instruction and journaling. Through this model
we will become fluent in addition and subtraction, learn the meaning of
place value, and real world applications like telling time and counting
money. We will also cover fractions and geometry.
In second grade, we use the program Amplify to collect reading and
math data. They will be asked to read a passage and retell in one minute
as well as answer comprehension questions on a literary story. mClass
assess 5 mathematical topics including, fact fluency and finding the
missing number in a sequence. But the end of the year, second grade
students must hit a TRC benchmark of L as well as 87 words read per
minute with 97% accuracy.
To stay up to date on what your student is doing in second grade,
please check with your homeroom teacher for information regarding Class
Dojo, a way to track behavior in a positive way and to communicate
between teachers and families. You can also follow Caze Elementary
School on Facebook for frequent updates about events and information.
It is also very important that you read with your student every night.
Reading at home is a great way to build a love of reading with your
student. Students also have homework Monday through Thursday. Please
check your student's folder nightly for notes from the teacher and to
help with homework as needed.
