I'm happy to announce the birth of my 3rd Language Practice to Mastery! Unit. That's what I call a productive snow day. :) I didn't do it ALL today...it's been a while in the making. My second graders LOVE these packets! They actually say, "This is fun, Mrs. Shirley!" We call them our Owl Packets. They are making us wise owls! I hope your second graders are enjoying them and learning from them, too! Let your colleagues know there's a product out there that's more than just an assessment--there's a way to master these Common Core standards! I keep my students' packets in data binders as proof of mastery. Let me know how they're working for your kiddos!
Why am I ready to rock 'n roll tomorrow? Because I just finished my next unit in "Common Core Language Practice to Mastery!" My 2nd graders did a FANTASTIC job with the L.2.1 unit and now we are ready to tackle some more Common Core standards. This unit covers L.2.2, including 8 skills:
