• Grade 2 Literacy Description

    Word Study documents include a scope and sequence for the Working With Words block. Resources include a blends chart, digraph chart, letter-sound chart, word wall words broken down by quarter and individual word walls, as well as suggested chants. A second grade word study training tool and Common Understandings are included.

    Common Core State Standards provide the structure for eight performance-based units of study. Close read units developed by our Basal Alignment Project team make up four of these units. Speaking and Listening are critical skills throughout the year; and genres studied include poetry, fiction and an increasing emphasis on informational literature.

    Competencies for each unit will be addressed through guided and independent practice throughout the block framework.
