2nd Grade Packet Information & Schedule

Due to the COVID-19 situation, all students in grades K-2 will move to remote instruction beginning on Tuesday, April 14th by completing a packet for specific grade level work.

The 2nd grade Packets focus on Math and Reading as per the Ready program. Our Schedule also includes lessons and activities in English/Language Arts (ELA) and Writing, with Enrichment activities sprinkled in. Special Education teachers are adapting what is being provided by classroom teachers – as modifications were included in students’ packets. Our Specials teachers (Art, Music, Computer, Library & Gym) post activities on their respective websites, included a Specials Packet, and are reaching out to families as much as possible.

Students are asked to continue visiting Teacher webpages for additional resources and Enrichment activities, as well as login with Clever for continuing to work in i-Ready, Study Island, IXL, Scholastic, Epic, and a host of other apps!

The following schedule is listed by week, and broken down into daily recommendations for pages to be completed in the 2nd Grade Math and Reading packets as part of our Ready curriculum:
