Welcome to Ms. Lanham's Second Grade Class !!
I am excited about being your child's teacher this school year!! I look forward to working with your child and the opportunity of getting to know you. Teaching is my passion and childhood dream. My important role is to nurture students and to help them exceed in learning. I believe that each child can learn and deserves the chance to do so.
My goal is that all students exceed in learning !! Listed below are examples of Second Grade Standards:
Language Arts- Students will be required to master Second grade I-Ready, sight words, read with fluency and accuracy while using decoding strategies, and participate in Writer's Workshop where students will learn the fundamentals of narrative, informational, and opinion writing.
Math- Identify numbers up to 120, understanding and apply place values, fluency add and subtract up to 4-digits numbers, measurement, length, and time; and identify attributes of plane and solid shapes.
Social Studies- Students will learn about historical figures: Georgia's first people, How Georgia Became a Colony, Geography.
Science- students will learn about energy and motion, seasons of the year, shadows, moon phases, constellations, light and sound, life cycles of plants and animals, and basic needs of living things.
An active parent/guardian is one of the best resource to have when it comes to an academically successful child. Therefore, we look forward to working with parents to teach the total child to excel and have a year of great expectations and success!
