Common Core State Standards

The FAIR Act

The California Education Code has been updated over time to make sure that the role and
contributions of members of underrepresented racial, ethnic and cultural groups to the economic,
political, and social development of California and the United States are included in history and
social studies lessons. The FAIR Education Act amends the Education Code by mandating
California schools to also include the contributions of people with disabilities and members of the
LGBT community in the curriculum.

Our Philosophy

Welcome to 2nd Grade! A pivotal year where we move from learning to read to reading to learn. We have implemented a Common Core standards-based curriculum using Eureka Math, Science programs, and Social Studies curriculum. Reader's and Writer's Workshops are a central part of our curriculum and are based on New York's Columbia University's Reading & Writing Project which has been adopted district-wide. All of our instruction incorporates hands-on learning experiences using cooperative groups to provide differentiated instruction through multiple intelligences.

How to Make Reading More Interactive at Home?

Although your child may be reading fluently, it is important to continue reading aloud to your child and making reading an INTERACTIVE experience. Before your child reads a book, take a picture walk and have your child make predictions about what they think the story will be about. Preview any "tricky words" they may come across and talk about that spelling pattern. Go over any difficult vocabulary words that your child may not know before reading. Ask your child to tell you who are the main characters? What is the setting? What did the character want? What was the problem? How was the problem solved? What was the lesson or theme of the story? What genre was the book? What was the author's purpose? You can make this a shared reading experience and model what good reading looks and sounds like. Happy Reading Second Grade Families!
