Fantasy in February!

posted Feb 14, 2016, 7:52 AM by Jason Brunken
With only two weeks this month, the Grade 2 classes will be working exclusively with the fantasy genre. Aside from taking a bit of time early in the week to finish our realistic fiction stories from the last month, students will be learning all about fantasy stories this month and how they contrast with realistic fiction and nonfiction. 

Students will close the month by writing their very own original fairy tales. This is always a favorite of students. It gives them a chance to apply everything they've learned about story writing to complete their best, most creative work yet. I can't wait to show them to you at conferences in March.

We will be having a spelling test this week and doing some grammar practice, however there will be no new vocabulary words. We will spend a little time reviewing words we've already practiced. Please use the handout below to prepare for the spelling test on Friday.
