Grades 2-3

2nd Grade Description:
In this Writing Workshop, guided by Common Core State Standards, your second graders will develop and write about their opinions.  Students will also use the five stages of writing - pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing and publishing - to learn and practice the various elements of strong writing.  The students will then create a story of their own design, shown through a final writing project.

3rd Grade Description:
Students in third grade will write opinion pieces in which they introduce the topic they are writing about; state an opinion; supply reasons that support their opinion; use linking words to connect opinion and reasons; and provide a concluding statement.  Students will also strengthen their writing by revising and editing.
