Two areas I want my students to have more practice in are handwriting and writing a complete sentence. As time dwindles down quickly every day in my second grade class, I struggle trying to fit everything in. Meeting the needs of all my students, not missing areas that I know need to be practiced and having everyone ready for third grade are always on my mind. My solution to this is blending things together as much as possible.
The center focuses on building a complete sentence, grammar, sentence context and handwriting skills. This is taught at the beginning of Writer's Workshop.
