Team 2nd Grade

The Friday before Spring Break my principal asked me if I was still interested in teaching 2nd grade... and the answer was YES! I taught 2nd grade for 7 years before transferring to my current school to teach 3rd grade. After 7 years, I'm ready to go back to my first love. I cannot explain how excited I am. I've been busy unpacking my new standards and purchasing resources. My new team even ordered me a shirt so it's official!
One thing that I love about teaching 2nd grade in Virginia is the curriculum! I've already started purchasing books to support my science standards. Have you heard of Picture Window Books? I love their Informational Picture Books, I've ordered all the ones that connect to my standards and they've already started arriving. 
When I taught 3rd grade, I created a learning handbook full of study guides from Adrienne Wiggins. Now that I'm going to 2nd, I knew I wanted to do the same thing. I spent my ENTIRE Spring Break creating study guides to go with every Standard of Learning in every subject in 2nd grade.
Language Arts
Social Studies
While I share all of my resources for free, unfortunately I won't be able to do that with these study guides. If you teach 2nd grade in Virginia and would like a copy, please consider making a donation. In the comment box, just add your email address and I'll email them to you within 12 hours.   
Check back throughout the summer, I can't wait to share ideas and resources for 2nd grade with you!
