Welcome to Second Grade at Lexington Univeral Academy!

Assalamu Alaikum,
Here is the Second Grade website. Plannings during the school months are Monday-Friday 9:36-10:30. Please don't hesitate to call and speak with me if there are ever any questions. 

Academics: LUA follows the Kentucky Academic Standards as specified by the Kentucky Board of Education. Below shows the core curriculum and also some supplemental materials used for each subject. 

Communication: There are several ways you can stay in communication with us. The main source of communication will be used via Parent Square. On Parent Square is where you will find: weekly newsletters, upcoming dates, important reminders, conference sign-ups, school closings/delays, and daily parent/teacher communication as needed. 

Another way you can stay in communication with us is by calling the school phone: (859)272-3360 or via email.

Homework: Homework will be posted on weekly newsletters. Any physical homework (weekly word work, at-home projects, fine motor skill activities) will be placed in their parent/teacher folder Monday afternoon. Homework is given on Monday and is not due until Friday. Most weeks students will have language arts homework in the form of handwriting weekly word work that encourages practice in writing, spelling, reading, sentence structure, and phonemic awareness. Also, students should expect IXL modules assigned that correlate with either previously practiced skills or skills that enhance what we are learning in the classroom. 

Links: Aside from homework, we will use several different online programs to supplement what we are learning in the classroom and allow for differentiation when needed. These will be used both in and out of the classroom as specified in the weekly newsletter. Here are the links to the other online resources we will use throughout the year:  

About the teacher: My name is Olivia Oakley and this will be my seventh year in education and my fifth year teaching at Lexington Universal Academy. I received my bachelor's degree at Transylvania University where I self-designed my own major (Gender Studies, Religion, and U.S. History). I then continued my education and gained my Master of Arts in Education with a concentration in Learning and Behavior Disorders at Georgetown College. My passion is implementing social-emotional learning into cross-curricular activities, developing a safe space for diverse learners, and allowing students the opportunity for individual self-expression wherever possible.
