In 2nd Grade Reading and Composition, students will strengthen their understanding of patterns in texts. Each Unit provides a combination of literary and informational texts. Students will learn how a poem, a story, and an informational text can convey different messages about the same topic. The course provides a variety of literature, including fun and classic pieces such as “The Lion and the Mouse” and “Cinderella.” It also provides contemporary informational texts such as a news article from 2020 about Baby Yoda. Students will build effective reading habits by practicing reading strategies before, during, and after reading. Before reading, students will learn vocabulary words that appear in the text and reflect on their background knowledge of the text’s genre. During reading, students will confirm predictions and answer questions. After reading, students will discuss the author’s purpose and make connections. At the end of each Unit, students will apply their learning to their own lives by investigating a topic or composing a text.
