In 2nd grade, your child becomes a more experienced writer and reader by practicing their skills in more complex and comprehensive ways. Students read bigger and more complicated books, and write longer and more in-depth pieces. Read on for what to expect this year, and shop all books and resources at The Scholastic Store! Students also expand their reading comprehension skills as they talk about what they read, and develop more advanced ideas around those topics. Just like in previous years, second graders also continuously practice reading as they use texts for other subjects throughout the day. Fill out the "who," "what," "when," "where," "why," and "how" of the book as your child discovers them.
