Welcome Second Grade Students and Families!

Welcome to Second Grade! 

My name is Mrs. Ashley DeCoy. This is my seventh year teaching in the Blackhawk School District. I received my Bachelors from the University of Pittsburgh and my Masters from Robert Morris University. My husband and I have two boys, Easton who is 3 and Theo James who is 6 months old! We love vacations on the beach, going to Living Treasures, playing at the park, and going to pumpkin patches.  I love having fun while learning and exploring so get ready for some FUN in second grade! If you need to contact me, please feel free to email me at or call the school. Thank you!

Looking Ahead to the First Nine Weeks:

Looking Ahead to the First Nine Weeks:

Math: GO MATH!

In Math, we are studying number concepts.

*Solve addition and subtraction word problems. 

*Memorize sums to 18. (Timed tests- 1 minute)

*Understand concepts of multiplication- arrays and repeated addition

*Count, read, write numerals to 1,000.

*Tell and write time to 5 minute numerals 

Students continue to be successful in our Math Workshops. The kids then work in groups to practice new skills with teachers and review skills with their peers, independently, and using technology. The GO Math! app is a great way to review information we recently learned.  



In Reading, the students continue the Daily 5 system. While students are doing this we are working with small groups conducting guided reading groups where we are focusing on skills differentiated according to student need.

Our language arts program is made up of several components.

The Harcourt Reading Series- This year we are working with the Storytown reading series.  The book is divided into weekly lessons.  The lessons include instruction in the following areas- phonics/spelling, comprehension, robust vocabualry, grammar, and writing. Each month, a new poem will be memorized and recited to the class. 

Social Studies and Science:

Social Studies and Science are integrated into our studies through monthly lessons, experiments, STEAM lessons, and Scholastic News articles and activities.
