The Sweetest Person I Know Is...

This Valentine's Day my students made a gift for the sweetest person they know. They really brightened up our 2nd grade hall and I know the recipients will cherish these "home(school)made" gifts.

What they did:
Last weeks writing center was to write a rough draft about the sweetest person they know. Their writing had to include the topic sentence "The sweetest person I know is ______________". Then they had to give at least 3 examples (supporting details) to tell why this person is so sweet.

I met with each student individually over the course of the week and helped them with any mechanical and grammar errors.

Finally they added a flower bouquet to their writing. They had a lot of fun, and they wrote many heart felt paragraphs. I loved reading them all!

Teachers Pay Teachers

Check out Teachers Pay Teachers for 2 of my math work station games (1 is free) and my new Rain Forest Unit. The Rain Forest Unit covers many of the 2nd grade Science Common Core Standards as well as the Language Arts Common Core Standards.  My 2nd grade team is going to do this unit at the same time with our 2nd grade students. I will let you know how it goes!
