Second and Third Grade

Second and third grades do many things together, while maintaining their own specific identities and curriculum. 


In second grade, we focus on solidifying the skills we learned in 1st grade. We work to make the transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn”. We take our writing skills a step further as we work toward excellent sentences that form strong paragraphs. 


Third graders are making a big jump into greater responsibilities. They’ll work to master multiplication facts and develop their paragraphs into full blown essays.  


Both classes will develop a greater understanding of math, science, and social studies through meaningful text, hands-on activities, and project-based learning. 

Above all, Jesus is a part of everything we do. We follow a curriculum of Old and New Testament lessons, learn how to use our Bibles, and sing, sing, sing!

Sarah Black

My name is Sarah Black, and as the child of talented church workers, I like to say I've been involved in ministry my entire life. I received my K-8 education degree from Concordia University in Austin. I have been teaching at Trinity Amarillo since 2007. My husband Rev. Ricky Black and I fell in love with Amarillo. We quickly settled in, and bought our forever home, South of town. We (along with our three, almost grown children) now have a farm full of ducks, chickens, and dogs.
