In this 2nd grade Language Arts, course students will improve their independent reading, comprehension, and writing skills through five literature books, weekly vocabulary, grammar, and writing lessons.
Through my experience gained in the classroom for 16 years, I will guide discussions to help students focus on positive and admirable characteristics found in the books we read while building their confidence and comprehension skills.
Students will be expected to read all required assignments discussed before each class meeting. Other optional homework will be provided to enhance the student's learning experience. These will be uploaded at the beginning of each book unit and should take between 1-2 hours to complete (including the reading). Each packet will include an assignment sheet and due dates. Optional assignments will include comprehension and deeper thinking questions paired with the book, short writing practices, and grammar review sheets.
