Welcome Second Grade Students and Families!

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 Second Nine Weeks:

Looking Ahead to the Second Nine Weeks:

For writing, we will be reviewing how to write complete sentences. We will also be learning how to write paragraphs with a topic sentence, 3 or more details, and a closing sentence. We will focus on personal narratives. 

For reading, we will be learning about a variety of nonfiction and fiction stories through read alouds, small group instruction, and our Harcourt Storytown series. Our focus skills will be author's purpose. 

The students will be assessed on daily math facts. Your child should be bringing home his/her envelope each night for you to see his/her progress. The students are also more than welcome to take home copies of fast facts to practice at home. Remember that X-Tra Math is a great website available for students to use at home. Please let me know if you need your child's log-in information.

In addition to math facts, the students will be learning place value, 2-digit addition and subtraction with regrouping, and counting money to solve word problems.

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