We will review and refine manuscript in second grade. We use the Zaner-Bloser manuscript font. Cursive will not be taught at the second grade level and it is encouraged to not teach it at home either.

In Grammar, we will learn about many things, including the following:
Sentence structure-what the subject and predicate are. Also that a sentence needs a capital and end mark.
Nouns-that they can be people, places, and things. We will also learn that special nouns need to be capitalized and how to make nouns singular and plural.
Verbs-we will learn that action words are verbs and discuss other verbs such as was/were, have/has, and is/am/are. We will discuss how to make verbs show present and past tenses.
Pronouns-we will learn that a pronoun takes the place of nouns to make our writing and speaking more fluent.
Adjectives-we will learn that adjectives are describing words and will discuss how to "spice" up our writing using juicy adjectives.
Poetry-At the end of our Grammar units, we will then take some time to learn about the different types of poetry, and write some of our own poetry!
