What is the Thematic Writing Center?
The Second Grade Thematic Writing Center includes word cards and independent writing sheets for the entire school year. Each month covers ten themes for a total of 90 themes. The themes can be interchanged between any months. The themes are independent of one another and can be swapped to fit your needs. Each theme has 5 word cards for a total of 450 word cards. These cards come with nonfiction/realistic photographs. The cards can be displayed for students to access. Along with the word cards, each theme comes with twelve activities. The twelve activities are repeated for every theme so that the task only has to be taught once.
