We are working on Expository Writing in 2nd Grade. Students learn to write two paragraphs about a specific topic.

Steps:
1) Read prompt for topic.
2) Brainstorm main ideas that apply to the topic.
3) Brainstorm discriptive language for the main ideas chosen.
4) Fill in a web (shown on the right) to organize ideas.
5) Write a first draft with indenting paragraphs and using transition words.
6) Edit paper.
7) Write a final draft.

Students will be graded on how well they:
1) Organize details in sequence.
2) Use writing rules.
3) Produce creative, informative, and persuasive writing with connected paragraphs on a topic.
4) Demonstrate legible printing skills.

The best way to help your child with his or her essay is to ask what they are writing about.
