The growth that second graders experience over the course of a year is incredible. Students start the year writing four or five sentences per page and end the year with ten or twelve sentences filling up a multi-page booklet. In reading, they go from reading early chapter books like Fly Guy to longer, more complicated books like Magic Treehouse. It’s the year that most kids get hooked on a series, fall in love with characters, and follow them on all sorts of adventures. Second-grade phonics is about closing the gap between what kids can read and what they can write conventionally.
