Mrs. Copeland - Second Grade

Mrs. Copeland has been with the Central Union Elementary School District since 1991. She was born and raised in Lemoore, Ca. She graduated High School from Lemoore High and then went to college at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration.
The curriculum for second grade students is based on the California Commom Core State Standards. Mrs. Copeland uses a variety of materials that link skills, understanding, and activities.

In room 29, we often start our morning with a "Five-a-Day", SSR and/or journal writing.

In math, McGraw Hill Mathematics is used. It is supplemented with activities and games. Topics of study include:

Math facts to 20
Addition and subtraction problems with regrouping
Numbers and their relationships to 1000
Money values to $5
Time to the quarter hour and elapsed time
Standard and metric measurement to the nearest inch and/or centimeter
Recognizing and producing patterns with an emphasis on number patterns
Geometric shapes (faces, edges, and vertices)
Developing and interpreting graphs and tables
Fact families
Problem solving
The students of room 29 will also have the privilege of studying Art with our specialist, Mr. Fraley.
We have PE twice a week with Mr. Avery and we have our fitness run every Monday where we meet a goal and earn charms.

I welcome and encourage parent involvement in their child’s education.
