This ongoing writing workshop class is a full year curriculum for 2nd grade writing. Great for Homeschooling. Students are introduced to a new unit of study each month based on 2nd grade writing standards. Students develop writing skills in all of the major forms of writing through explicit instruction. #academic

Class experience

US Grade 2
 The students will develop in their second grade  daily writing skills, and learn different writing strategies to generate ideas for writing a specific writing task.
   As an elementary classroom/ special education teacher, teaching the writing  is a good way to launch the new  year. The students are able to tell stories about themselves and share what is important to them. This builds a sense of community in the classroom. This writing class helps the young writers develop their writing skills and confidence in writing. I have seen students achieve success and growth with learning new craft moves and  learning new strategies in writing.
Homework Offered
Optional choice- Students may continue their writing assignments after class has ended to practice their new skills.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
During the writing to class, I will assess the students writing skills using a rubric for writing from the second-grade level. I will complete informal assessments throughout the lessons to provide extra support to the students writing. First, during the students active engagement at the beginning of the lesson. Then, during the middle of the lesson within small group instruction, and at the end assessing the students completed assignments and tasks.
Grades Offered
 1 file available upon enrollment
A small composition book for writing. The students will complete their assignments through: Power Point slides/ Google slides within the Outschool portal.
