So let's catch up...
We are working on informative reading and writing.
unit aligned with Common Core if you are interested.
My 2nd graders are reading about spiders.
This year I used my hamburger paragraph unit to introduce informative writing.
We talked about different options for the topic sentence and conclusion and they filled in their own facts. I think scaffolding is very important in writing. The next assignment I will ask them to write two sentences for each juicy detail and gradually provide less support as they get better at coming up with topic sentences on their own.
It's official. My windows have become teaching walls. The students are getting really good at identifying text features. I love when they come to show me they found one in a book they are reading!

My second graders did a little writing activity, highlighting the proper nouns they used and made the pumpkins free hand.
Could you use a fun math activity this week?
My 2nd graders will be practicing making nouns ending in y plural this week.
