In second grade, we use enVisionMATH Common Core.  The program helps students develop a conceptual understanding of important math concepts through Problem-Based interactive learning, Visual Learning Bridges, and Visual Learning Animations.
It also provides ongoing assessment, diagnosis, and intervention.  Formative assessments are interwoven throughout the program at each lesson and topic level.

Writing is taught using the Lucy Calkins writing program.  Students in 2nd grade will write across 4 genres.  Personal narratives, informative, persuasive and finally poetry.  The children will learn the importance of a strong lead and ending while building their craft and learning to include important details, descriptive language and more.
 
Spelling and grammar are taught through the Treasure's reading series and are embedded in the writing instruction as well.
