A Season for Chapters
In this first six-week unit of second grade, students read chapter books by Cynthia Rylant, informational texts, and poetry--all related to the four seasons.
Overview
Focusing on the beauty of language in poetry and a well-written fictional story, students learn poetry terms and the beginnings and endings of stories. In preparation for writing informational text, students complete a research project on a seasonal activity from a contrasting region of the U.S., such as snow skiing or sailing. Enjoying the music of Vivaldiā€™s Four Seasons, students write seasonal poetry. Students review the roles of authors and illustrators. They also read about specific authors/poets. This unit could become a weather unit or a solar system unit by adding topic-specific titles to the informational texts.
