Nonfiction Writing in Second Grade

Our second graders have been very busy working on nonfiction writing.  Be sure to take a look at the pop-up books Mrs. McKan’s students have displayed for our Read the Wall writing.   As you read each of the books, take a minute to comment on how the student stayed on topic with facts only, how the student organized the chapters, and how well the student uses conventions.  Thanks, second graders for some wonderful books!

Here is a proud second grader displaying all her hard work.
