• Grade 2

    We are thrilled to welcome the second graders to the Greenvale School.  We know that it is a big transition coming from Waverly but the students seem to be adjusting to the routines and expectations of second grade.  This year students will continue to sharpen reading and writing skills.  We will read rich literature and expand on our writing skills.  The students will explore math through different modalities and work on strengthening automaticity with their facts.  We are excited for the many Maker Space projects that we have planned.  Students will have the opportunity to be innovative while working as a team.  Some positive phrases that can be carried over at home are; “Instead of: I give up! Think: I’ll use a different strategy.”  Or, “Instead of: I’ll never be smart.  Think: I will learn how to do this!” 


            Our Science curriculum includes: Structures and Properties of Matter, Earth Systems, and the Interdependence of Ecosystems. In Social Studies we will explore three types of communities, citizenship and Map Skills. Some special events that Second Grade participates in include:  Theater Works, Dancing with the Honey Bees an author visit and Frank Soma the Entomologist.  As you can see we will be very busy!  We are excited for a great year!

    The Third Grade Team welcomes you to Greenvale School!   We strive to create a nurturing environment where all children find the confidence to develop their full potential.   In Third Grade children enhance their reading, writing, and math skills, while exploring many new areas.  Children are encouraged to become writers and to explore new literary genres and book series.  In Social Studies we explore culture, geography, and countries including China. 
    Our Science curriculum emphasizes a STEM approach and includes the following themes: forces and interactions,  inheritance and variation, weather and climate, and interdependent relationships in ecosystems.  We strive to integrate technology into all subjects.
    Third Graders perform in a recorder concert, and participate in PTA sponsored activities including International Day, the Dino Dig.  The children also enjoy field trips to Teatown and the Bruce Museum.

    ASSESSMENT

    The language arts continuum sets the standards which students are expected to reach over time.   Teachers assess a student's progress within the continuum from daily student work, reading and writing samples, teacher observation, and individual, small group, and whole class performance.   The formal assessments listed below are given at specified times throughout the year. These assessments help teachers to measure each student's progress toward developing the reading competencies for meeting the standards.   Your child's teacher will be happy to discuss the meaning of these assessment tools, and provide you with additional information.
