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.
