MATH: For our Mathematics curriculum we will continue to utilize Go Math! Florida as second grade students build on their math knowledge with Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, learning helpful strategies, as well as venturing in to Telling Time, Money, Geometry, Measurement and Graphing.
This year we are excited to continue utilizing Marion County's newest reading series, Core Knowledge Language Arts, along with supplemental reading material(s) to help every student towards their reading goal(s)! It is my expectation that every student will do his/her best to reach, and perhaps exceed, their expected potential. I know they have the ability to learn something new every day, and am super excited to be a part of their learning process!!
Social Studies, the study of the social sciences, including economy, geography, history, civics, government, sociology and psychology is important for our students to learn to help them become the responsible citizens we know they are! By completing class projects, on-line research and activities, the students help themselves, and each other, learn about the World's past, present and future, and their place in it! Florida Studies Weekly will be an integral part of our Social Studies curriculum this year.
SCIENCE: Learning about the Nature of Science and the Scientific Process is just the beginning for this year. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the natural world around them, including our home, Earth, basic of our human body, life cycles, matter, force and motion and forms of energy while engaging in Science based assignments and activities. Students will enjoy interact Science with STEMScopes!
