Children are old enough to be somewhat independent, but in many ways, second graders still want to be your “baby.” Developmentally, your second grader is taking on more and more responsibility, although some days you may wonder if your child has learned anything at all. Below are some of the things you can expect your child to learn in second grade. Math Math concepts become more complex in the second grade. Children learn to group numbers, and they work with numbers far greater than those they can physically count. Second graders learn  skip counting (counting by twos, fives, or tens)  how to add and subtract two-digit numbers  measurements of time, temperature, and distance Many teachers also introduce multiplication tables up to the number five by the end of the year. Language Arts Children need to read fluently before they can fully comprehend what they read. In the second grade, reading is all about fluency. The stories children read are more complicated, and students are expected to become more rapid and accurate readers. The cursive alphabet is usually introduced in the second grade, and children use it to write stories of their own. The sentences children write become longer and more complex, and their spelling and use of punctuation improves. Second Grade
