    Our main goal is to work together so that the students can reach their greatest potential.

    In ELA, we use the CKLA Literacy program. This includes the listening and learning domain and skills strand. We will be paying special attention to developing reading and writing skills. Students will be writing in their reflection journals each night to explain what they learned that day. Integral to the second grade program is the daily book-in-a-bag assignment. Your child must read every night from an appropriate book on his/her independent reading level. In addition, students should complete a report or project to go along with each book.

    In Math, in accordance with New York State Learning and Assessment Standards and the Common Core Curriculum, we use Engage NY Modules and Envisions 2. We use rich and challenging math content and engage the students in real-world problems in order to inspire greater interest in math.
