Second Grade Literature Teacher Key: Second Edition
The Second Grade Literature Answer Key contains the answers to all the literature guides for Second Grade (Animal Folk Tales of America, Prairie School, The Courage of Sarah Noble, Little House in the Big Woods, and Tales from Beatrix Potter).
Children who are asked to read slightly above their comfort level will develop into superior readers. Our reading program for grades 2-7 continues the development of reading skills through universally recognized classic literature. Reading is not a passive activity for pleasure. Reading requires an active, discriminating mind that is challenged to think, compare, and contrast. Students who have been challenged by good literature will never be satisfied with the poor-quality books that are so readily available today.
Literature study guides train students to become active readers. Our guides focus on vocabulary, spelling, comprehension, and composition skills. Each lesson includes a word study to help students build vocabulary. The comprehension questions challenge students to consider what they have read, identify the important content of each story, and compose clear, concise answers (a difficult skill at any age). Writing is thinking, and good questioning stimulates the child to think and write.
