Second Grade

Second Graders are beginning to mature into stronger readers and writers.  Continuing to work on their comprehension skills is key in second grade.  Second graders will need to begin to self monitor their own thinking while they are reading.  Having a stack of sticky notes next to them while they read is not uncommon.  You may see them put their book down to jot a wondering, a question or perhaps make a prediction.  They will then stick it back in the book and carry on.  What a beautiful sight!  They are independently thinking while they are reading!
