My students enjoy writing but struggle with choosing a topic. It is difficult for second graders to narrow their topic and focus on one area. The nonfiction books will give them background information they can relate to and help them see that interesting topics are right around them in their everyday lives. The organization will be used to store their ongoing writing. Second graders struggle with getting their ideas down on paper. We will use the nonfiction books to build background and begin writing a personal story. Once that story is on paper they then struggle with the actual handwriting and penmanship. The dry erase envelopes will be used so that the students can edit their writing without having to constantly erase and rewrite.
