1st and 2nd Grade

Mrs. Tania Kopplin


Our first and second grade instruction builds on our kindergarten program with a continuing emphasis on phonics and reading. Students continue to grow in their reading and listening skills as they are exposed to age appropriate literature and poetry. The primary grades build the foundation for future learning, and a strong foundation is built in all the core subject areas in the first and second grade classroom.

The following curricular areas are taught in first and second grade:

  • Word of God – Christ Light Lessons from Northwestern Publishing House
  • SRA McGraw Hill Reading – Imagine It
  • Houghton Mifflin – Spelling and Vocabulary
  • Zaner Bloser – Handwriting
  • Saxon & Everyday – Mathematics
  • Shurley Method – English Made Easy
  • Pearson Core Knowledge – History and Geography
