Getting Ready for Second Grade: Things to Remember
2. Students are expected to spell the previous spelling words correctly or points are deducted. I have a word wall in my room filled with words from previous spelling tests and they are always welcome to use it as a resource.
3. Capitalize the first letter of a sentence and end with a punctuation mark. Also, a sentence is a group of words that forms a complete idea - no run-on sentences or incomplete thoughts!
4. Handwriting - we are now exclusively writing on wide-ruled paper and are focusing on making our words and numbers legible and neat.
