The second grade forms the second layer of the foundation of a child’s primary education. In the second grade, children are usually 7 to 8 years old. Students are taught subjects such as Math, Science, English and Social Studies.
In Math, they are introduced to larger numbers (building up on what was taught to them in the first grade) and fundamental operations such as addition and subtraction. They are also taught measurement of time, length, distance, weight and temperature along with additional basic concepts of geometry.
In terms of reading skills, they are introduced to basic grammar skills and cursive writing. The focus on developing reading skills lays emphasis on reading for better comprehension. The subject of Science helps them explore basic earth and space sciences along with planets, animals and the weather system.
In Social Studies, children are provided with a basic understanding of the community, and about themselves. They are also given a basic understanding of how to read a map, direction and are taught about some countries in the Arabic nation.
