Grading Scale

Second Grade Grading Scale:

In second grade we move to a traditional grading scale consisting of later grades A-F.  Your child will be graded in the following areas:


        This grade is based on our guided reading program with the students.  The students will receive 2 separate grades

  • Fluency is the speed and accuracy in which your child reads. 
  • Phonics is the ability to blend and sound out words, understand and recognize spelling patterns and letter sounds. 


Reading/Literacy: There are 4 categories of grades

  • literature comprehension (understanding Fiction)
  • informational text comprehension (understanding Non Fiction)
