Language: CCSS The students in second grade should be able demonstrate command over the grammar when writing. If they students are writing silly sentences, then they should still show command over grammar and how sentences should sound.
Students would write their words in white crayon then they could choose a colored marker and color over their word and see it magically appear. I think this would be fun for the younger grades because they would enjoy seeing the word magically appear.
Word Work In the book "Classrooms that Work" by Cunningham and Allington, I learned about different word work strategies. I like the use of bananagrams to help with word work because it gets a student interested and they learn while having fun.
