Notes on Grammar: Class 2

So I thought I would explain a little bit about what I meant by my generic heading "Grammar" for December in Second Grade. Here is what is presented. The greater bulk of an intro to Grammar happens in Third Grade. Live Education has a wonderful book on it, combining the subject with the Old Testament Stories.

Second Grade Grammar Notes

  • lowercase letters

  • simple capitalization - beginning of a sentence, I

  • simple punctuation - full stop

  • simple parts of speech - name words in blue, doing words in red, how words in orange, picturing words in green

  • Teaching English by Roy Wilkinson

  • An English Manual for the Elementary School by Dorothy Harrer

Another point:

Grammar ties in well in December because this is the time you are writing all those thank you notes!
