Common Core Texts for 2nd Grade: Unit 1--The Seasons (Fiction)

If you have looked at the curriculum map in the book Common Core Curriculum Maps you may be surprised by some of the titles you see.  The titles that are recommended for second grade teachers to use during the first unit (Seasons) is an interesting mix of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.  In all, if you take a look at the book, you will see a return to the use of 'old stand-bys' of yesteryear as the suggested literature for units shows a return to the oldies-but-goodies such as Alice in Wonderland, Charlotte's Web, Little Women, etc.

There are so many books suggested that I decided that I would break the books for the first unit down to a fiction post and a non-fiction post.  I hope that you find this list and the links to helpful.  At the end you will find my url for my newest board on Pinterest which will house the titles needed for second grade.

Suggested Works to have on hand in 2nd grade:

Henry and Mudge and the Snowman Plan by Cynthia Rylant and Sucie Stevenson

Snowballs by Lois Ehlert

Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert

The Days of Summer (Eve Buntin and William Low)

Snow (Uri Shulevitz)

Peepers  (Eve Buntin and James Ransome)

The Little Yellow Leaf (Carin Berger)

Read Aloud

The Mitten by Jan Brett

Hope this is helpful.  As always, enjoy!

  8. As we all know, looks can be deceiving, so I decided to
    try out the question tool for myself. Spend some time to design
    a good-looking 404 page, site offline page, etc.
    The more doors you have the more chances of people finding it.
    Out of those 6 keywords, further reduce
    the number of keywords. Since Google organic rank can
    bring in thousands of potential customers, search engine
    position service firms have made a business of promising
    high positions in search engine results pages. The algorithms are not known publicly, but one thing is
    certain, is the search engine websites that the information is
    relevant to the purpose of the preferred site. Domain Authority is
    influenced by:. There are many tools online to help you research relevant keywords, such as the Google Adwords Keyword Tool.
    It focuses on networking and impeccable website maintenance.

    Moving your hosting to a nearby country such as
    Canada or an offshore Caribbean host may provide the
    same latency times, but reduce the risk of having your website brought down by a mistake.
    No - you name some of your images "breast. Create a general, high-level category in which you want to manage all phrases'for example 'global,' 'online,' 'channel,' and so on.

When a person enters a keyword into the search box of a particular search engine such as Google, there will be scores of results showing out which are a result of a search engine algorithm devised by that particular search engine. You need the keyword and phrase in both title and description. Never post a half edited article, and never settle for less than your best.
