Mrs. Ward's Class
Welcome to the Second Grade Academy! Our class will use the Action 100 reading program. This program requires students to read independently for a total of four steps, one hour per day (30 minutes at school and 30 minutes at home: 15 minutes equals one step). As students progress in their reading they move through the program levels earning a medal of achievement for every 100 steps. Action 100 also has a writing component where students read and respond to text using rubrics for informational and literary books. We will begin reading steps after the first couple of weeks. Our class also uses Saxon Math and Phonics as a supplement to our core curriculum Reading Wonders Series and Go Math!
