The transition from 2nd to 3rd grade is a critical time in a child’s educational journey. So today we are excited to announce the launch of a comprehensive 2nd grade curriculum to expand our award–winning ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy for children ages 2–8. The expanded curriculum is designed to address the learning needs and interests of 2nd grade students with the goal of preparing them for the transition to 3rd grade.
Our 2nd grade curriculum, includes more than 1,500 new learning activities on two new levels in the Step–by–Step Learning Path, providing lessons in five key academic subjects: English language arts, math, social studies, science, and health. Children using ABCmouse at home, in classrooms, in libraries, and in other community institutions will all have access to the 2nd grade curriculum.
We’ve expanded ABCmouse’s engaging content to address 2nd grade learning objectives with additional stepped readers spanning the range of 2nd grade reading skills, including 60 new fiction and non–fiction books. Children can continue to learn from characters they have come to know and love as well as interact with a new cast of inspiring characters, including a superhero quintet called the Write Team and Dr. Deb, a young future doctor who loves to explain how the body works.
Age of Learning Curriculum Board member and National Teacher of the Year awardee Kimberly Oliver Burnim shared her thoughts on the expansion of ABCmouse: "The release of these 2nd grade learning activities on ABCmouse will help children build the strong foundation needed to succeed in 3rd grade and beyond."
