Writing We will utilize the curriculum Write From the Beginning and Beyond – Thinking Map framework K-12 Characteristics and goals: personal narrative, imaginative narrative, informative, expository (how and why), persuasive, response to literature. Journal Work: Students are given prompts and are also given a free choice. 2 nd Graders concentrate on an organized paragraph. (Minimum of 8 sentences – must include an opening and closing sentence.)
Word Work Word Work will be individualized based on each student’s assessment. FRY High Frequency Wordlists by end of 2 nd : Reading #1- #300 Spelling # At this level, conventional spelling becomes more important, so we will also work on research skills, such as dictionary and thesaurus use. Although the words may not appear challenging, the regularities are what we are focusing on. These patterns need to carry over into the student’s writing.
Handwriting 2 nd grade will work on correct formation of printed letters using the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. We will introduce cursive strokes toward the end of the school year. Website for Parents: hwtears.com/click
