2nd Grade

All homework and assignments are on Google Classroom.  Google Classroom are shared with current students only.

Core Knowledge is a clear and sequential body of knowledge that builds each year beginning with What your Second Grader Needs to Know by E.D. Hirsch, Jr.  Because we are a public school in Colorado, we have aligned CK with Colorado Academic Standards.  The body of knowledge can be found in the Core Knowledge Sequence  and the text Core Virtues by Mary Beth Klee.

Some highlights of 2nd grade: Life Cycle of tadpoles, caterpillars, and chicks;  Ancient China and Japan units; Westward Expansion - gold panning and covered wagons; Simple Machines.

Some of the 2nd grade Core Knowledge Sayings and Phrases students learn: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you; Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today; The more the merrier; Like fish out of water.

Mrs. Deady - homeroom teacher 
I have been teaching for 17 years.  I have an Elementary Education degree from Illinois State with two endorsements in Social Sciences and Language Arts.  I also have my Masters in Reading Instruction.  I have been teaching 2nd grade at Littleton Academy for four years.  I feel very honored to be part of the Littleton Academy family.

Ms. Fair - homeroom teacher 
I've been at Littleton Academy since 2015 and I'm excited to start another year at this incredible school. I started working with kids in a swim setting, first as a swim lesson instructor and then as a swim coach. This led me to pursue teaching as a career. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado (Go Bears!) receiving a degree in Elementary Education with a Visual Art Emphasis. When I'm not at school or the pool I love to go to concerts, create art, and enjoy the outdoors.
