Children entering second grade are familiar with the operations and nature of the classroom. Their knowledge will deepen and expand as they gain more critical thinking experience in reading, writing, and math. In general, reading may encompass filling out graphic organizers for literary elements, paying closer attention to affixes, adding creative ideas to existing stories, and spelling. Adding more detail, writing longer sentences, beginning to revise, and experimenting with opinion, narrative, and expository forms can be expected in the second grade writing curriculum. Math expectations include measurement, mental math, geometry, addition and subtraction to prepare for multiplication, story problems, 3-digit numbers, estimation, skip counting, and graphs. A stimulating, unsurpassed mix of reading, writing, and math is available in this resource unit that aligns with standard learning goals to maximize student achievement. Holiday pages, mixed critical thinking skills, maps, puzzles, and mazes will capture the interest of your second graders.
