New Hebron Christian School

2nd Grade

Educational Objectives

In 2nd grade we work to improve our reading skills and build our comprehension. In math we learn all addition and subtraction families and 0-5 multiplication facts. In Language Arts, we focus on cursive writing, the 8 parts of speech and their usage, writing complete paragraphs, and perfecting our phonics skills. We then use these skills to add to our Bible knowledge and understanding.

2nd grade also attends weekly classes in music, art, PE, and computer. Our goal at NHCS is to offer a well-rounded education with high academic standards while instilling Christian values into the hearts of our students. This is the main objective of our curriculum in 2nd grade.
