In order to fit in all my standards and cover all the types of writing we need to do in second grade, we also have a separate writing time that is more guided. When I do this type of writing we go through the whole writing process as a class. At the end of the week we publish our writing piece. Last year I began designing publishing paper that went with our themes. It's worked wonders! The class gets so excited to see their publishing paper and they make sure they use their VERY best handwriting when they publish their work. I also use it in one of my centers for letter writing. They love coloring the images for their friends.

We have been learning about American Symbols this month. We focused on the Bald Eagle and the students filled their fact books with their new knowledge!
We are studying the Liberty Bell this week. The kids are so curious about that crack!

Now stop by and link up what you have been doing in your classroom!
