We have had great progress with expository writing this past couple of weeks! The students are really engaged and using fun ideas for Prewriting to help get the facts organized. To correlate with "Diary of a Spider" we used actual spiders as our prewriting map. I have attached pictures of students samples. 2nd grade is the perfect age to develop a love of writing. If we make this fun for them now, they will not see writing as a chore but as a fun extension of their learning.
