A Sentence A Day for Grade 2
Available in the U.S.
This new edition of A Sentence A Day has the same format as our original version but is grade-specific for Grade 2.
The original resource contains only examples of narrative stories. The Grade 2 version also includes expository/informative texts, and some opinion texts, thus helping students recognize genre. In addition, after a brief review, this resource picks up where the previous left off, includes more challenging vocabulary, and more directly teaches parts of speech and grammar skills.
In an engaging, fast-paced ten minutes a day, students continue to learn how sentences are constructed, recognize the parts of simple sentences, parts of speech, grammar and punctuation, while reinforcing the basic characteristics of narrative and expository writing. Included in this resource: a week-at-a-glance, day-by-day teacher guide, weekly sentence-building word cards for creative work and learning stations, and related art pages to inspire thematic thinking and writing. There are enough weekly themes for 38 weeks of school, plus a bonus week at the end. In just ten minutes a day students not only learn how to write many types of sentences and build powerful vocabulary, but also become familiar with the conventions of genre.
