Second Grade Skills Unit 1: The Cat Bandit

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

For twenty-two lessons over five weeks, scholars practice sound-spelling correspondence, spelling patterns, tricky words, and reading decodable text. Assessments aid in small group formation and gauge comprehension. Lessons begin with a warm-up, then go into concept review, skills practice, and reading time. Some lessons include take-home materials for extra practice.
