*`*Welcome to Ms. Archie's*`*
Second Grade Class
I am excited to welcome you and your child to second grade. This time will be a year of amazing growth for your child. It begins with seemingly simple review of skills mastered in first grade an progresses with your child gaining the needed skills to be an independent reader and learner. We will be moving away from reading instruction that focuses on reading independently and fluently (how to read) to working more on reading comprehension. This includes, but is not limited to, understanding what is read as well as being able to discuss the text. Be prepared to allow your child time to adjust to these developmental milestones as they occur.
