Our school uses the Treasures Reading Series. Second grade uses this story in the third unit. To practice their spelling words I made this easy to use making words activity! I like to give them clues about the word but not the actual word. Such as "sprain", this is what happens to your ankle when you twist it.
When having them write their complete sentences review what you expect from them. For those that are better writers encourage them to use adjectives in their sentence to spice it up!!
