• 2nd grade

    Welcome to 2nd Grade at Gum Springs Elementary!

    In 2nd grade, your student will work on becoming a more experienced writer and reader by practicing their skills in more complex ways. They will move from learning how to read to reading for learning.  Students will read bigger and more complicated books, and write longer and more detailed pieces. We will also work on projects that involve research and critical thinking to show your student’s learning and understanding. At this age students also pay more attention to friendships and teamwork. We will work to foster positive cooperative learning experiences and improve social skills.
