With this said, I have two fall ditties for you. I managed to buckle down on Saturday and finish my October 2nd Grade Good Morning Work - Reading Packet (it was our first rain of the season . . . and it was SO hard not to cuddle up under a blanket with my pup and watch college football). Chalk one up for my "focus and get 'er done" stamina . . . who knew??!!
As always, I "chunked" my topics in this one. In other words, the same 5-6 common core standards are targeted for an entire week. This allows your kids to be much more independent in the AM. AND . . . it provides you with a little more wiggle room during those chaotic mornings. My thought here is that you highlight it once on Monday (maybe again on Tuesday if need be) and you are pretty much home free for the rest of the week.
I also have tried to time the order of the standards to give you time to teach the material. I've spoken to several 2nd grade teachers and I am really laboring to get the pacing right. I don't want to give your babes too many standards that they haven't seen yet.
This collection covers everything from proper nouns, commas in a series, and detailed sentence writing to prefixes/suffixes, vowel teams, and shades of meaning (verbs)!! CLICK HERE to check out this pack.
Oh, and maybe . . . just maybe . . . you wanna "try before you buy??" Well, you are in luck. Snag the three pages shown down below to use with your crew HERE. If you like what you see unfold in your room, come on back and treat yo-self to the whole pack (it's only $3 for a whole month of learning)!
Alright, dinner has been waiting on the stove for about 38 minutes. I think the mister has been more than patient . . . huh?? Thanks so much for stoppin' by my friends. Hang in there y'all. We can do this :) See you soon gang!
