2nd Grade Reading & Writing Resources

The second grade English language arts curriculum requires students to expand their base knowledge. They enhance grammar usage with an understanding of collective nouns, irregular plural pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives and other sentence components. Combined with grammar work, second graders learn to write compound sentences, investigate the nuances of word meanings and much more. The Learning Library provides all the help educators may need, from professional lesson plans to interactive games, for kids to meet their reading and writing goals.

Riveting Reading and Writing Resources for Second Graders

Fish or fishes? What is the proper way to end a sentence? Who, what, when, where, why and how? These are a few questions second graders are taught in English as they expand their grammar and punctuation capabilities and further their reading comprehension. Reading and writing resources for second graders can be found in one convenient place in Education.com's Learning Library.

The tools include a blend of guided lessons, online games and other practical teaching methods. Among these handy sources are dozens of printable worksheets that can be used for in-class or homework assignments. Some worksheets are focused on reading concepts while others concentrate on grammar.

There are also prepared lesson plans created by teachers for teachers. One crowd-favorite includes an inspection on Types of Sentences. Second graders learn how to classify imperative sentences like ""Stop and smell the roses,"" and declarative sentences like, ""Writing is fun."" The lesson plans are designed with time guidelines so educators can easily follow along.

The resource library's appealing hands-on activities physically immerse students in reading and writing. Online games are enjoyable for kids and facilitate learning on their own. These are among the many tools that spur an interest in reading and transform growing students into nimble writers with a mastery of grammar.
