35 spelling journals for 2nd graders to supplement 2nd Grade Common Core ELA standards. Each page contains words fitting specific spelling patterns, and has an accompanying grammar practice activity. Students will work their way from writing two sentences at the beginning of the year until they’re writing six sentences. I use each page with my class for a week, to only to practice the spelling and grammar skills, but to practice editing. (I find they’re more successful with smaller chunks of texts rather than delving into a larger piece.) The scope of the spelling/grammar practice is below. (Each link leads to products with corresponding spelling/grammar activities.)
Each journal comes in a full sized 11x8.5 version, as well as two 5.5x4.25 on a single page.
Another note to buyers: some of the main feedback I’ve received from my spelling and grammar packets is that they’re challenging – to which I say “awesome!” I use these materials with my own second graders, and although I am blessed to work with a high-readiness population, even my students who struggle academically have benefitted with direct instruction and some extra help. Enjoy, and please contact me if you’d like any suggestions on how to incorporate the materials into your lessons!
These 15 multi syllable words and alligator themed 5 activities will help 2nd graders practice using inflected endings and the suffixes -er and -est! Students will also practice writing declarative and interrogative sentences, as well as using comparative and superlative adjectives.
