These three units comprise a year's worth of Common Core Writing for 2nd grade! This bundle includes Common Core Writing Practice to Mastery Opinion, Informative and Narrative Writing Units. See individual unit descriptions for detailed explanations. Scoring Guides are included for all three units that involve student self-scoring, peer scoring and teacher scoring. Students reflect on scores, then create a goal for improvement. These units are tried and true resources used with my own second graders and the kids end up so proud of their quality work!
Write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic or book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply reasons that support the opinion, use linking words (e.g., because, and, also) to connect opinion and reasons, and provide a concluding statement or section.
Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.
Write narratives in which they recount a well-elaborated event or short sequence of events, include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure.
