The end of the school year: grades are set, diaries are signed. It’s time to check how well the child learned the school curriculum. Today we will figure out how to determine the success of a second grader.
Marina Dukhanin a – teacher
Recall that not everywhere a foreign language is studied from the first class. Quite often, especially in secondary schools, English is introduced from the second year. What is the difference? It will be easier for a first grader who has studied English to master the program in the future. If a child does not have basic knowledge, he will have to master the alphabet and basic reading skills literally within a month.
What a second grader should know by the end of the year
If a child has passed first grade English, his results should not differ much by the end of the second year. Consider the main achievements:
1. Skills and abilities:
– Write letters, know their order in the alphabet
– Write words from the conversational topics covered
– Copy sentences from the sample (cheating)
– Create your own simple sentences according to the model or supplement the sentences with the necessary words.
– Read words from one or two syllables, know the basic letter combinations.
– Read short texts, consisting of simple sentences, pre-listening to them in the record.
– Recognize by ear small texts and statements that are built on familiar material, mainly based on the pictures.
– Participate in simple dialogues, be able to say hello and say goodbye, answer questions about yourself, and also support a simple conversation on the everyday topic: “Family”, “School”, “Working Day”, “My Home” using simple sentences and stable phrases
– Make a small story about the family, home, animal, modeled on 5-6 sentences

2. Basic words and expressions:
The main conversational topics are repeated from class to class, every year. In the second grade, the child will repeat what he taught in the first grade, gradually adding new words and expressions.
Do not require the child to tell you the rule: at an early age, grammar is given only in the form of ready-made phrases.

At an early age, a personalized approach to learning is especially important. The standard program in the school usually does not provide for the individual characteristics of the child, his interests and the level of English. If the scores in the report card want the best, work with your child at home. And in the assistants choose themed cards, board games and videos.
