Detailed Description

I created these quick writes as a formative assessment tool for each of our second grade Social Studies and Science Units. These have been my favorite way to bring writing into science. It has helped my students practice writing paragraphs to inform on a weekly basis. I have these sentence frames posted in my class: I learned many things about ________. One thing I learned... Another thing... Also, ... In addition... These are some things I learned about ____________. Each quick write asks: What are three things you learned about ____________. At the top of each quick write page is a word bank with helpful vocabulary words. This is a great way to provide support for your ELLs and struggling spellers. At the bottom of each quick write is a quick rubric for grading SS/Science and Writing. This is a great way to bring SS/Science content into writing as well as writing into SS/Science. I have included all 12 VA Social Studies SOLs for Second Grade: Communities Good Citizens Map Skills World Maps US Maps American Indians (Powhatan, Lakota, Pueblo) Ancient China Ancient Egypt Goods and Services Producers and Consumers Scarcity and Bartering Types of Resources I have also included Quick writes for all 8 VA Science SOLs for second grade: Adaptations Life Cycles Living vs. Nonliving Ecosystems, Habitats, Plants Solids, Liquids, and Gases Magnets Severe Weather Water Cycle I have also included and blank template so you can edit in Powerpoint or print and hand-write to use these quick writes or as tickets out the door. *My county grades 2nd grade on a S+, S, S-, N scale. Feel free to edit the rubric to fit your needs!

I am currently a third grade teacher. My third grade team is departmentalized, so I have the pleasure of teaching LA and social studies to two groups of students. Before teaching third grade, I was a second grade teacher for three years and prior to that I spent a year as an instructional support teacher for reading (K-2 LTS). I have recently earned my Masters degree in education with a focus on Teachers for Speakers of Other Languages (TSOL).
