Back to School Writing for Second Grade is a packet of beginning of the school year themed second grade writing activities. The easy to use set of writing printables includes prompts about the first day of school, response to literature, summer fun, getting to know me, school friends, and more.
I include more than one version of some of the writing printables to address varying student levels.
Some of the writing activities address second grade CCSS writing standards:
Examples are writing about the school day and school week as a sequence of events and writing facts about a topic in response to reading or listening to a book.
Some of the printables are specific to "back to school," but some can be used throughout the year.
