Since this will be my first year teaching second grade, I have been spending some time familiarizing myself with the second grade common core standards. I have also been looking back at the resources I created for my third graders and adapting them for my new second graders. However, I’ve noticed that there are some second grade standards that are not covered in third grade.
For my first new product, I decided to design an activity to practice the second grade language standard 2.L.1: Use collective nouns. It is called A Day at the Zoo with Collective Nouns because I focused on the collective nouns related to animals.
The matching game can be used all year round for frequent practice of these animal collective nouns since they are not often used in regular conversations.
I also included an assessment to test students' knowledge after you feel they have had sufficient time to practice the skill by playing the game.
I am linking up with 3 Teacher Chicks for Tackle it Tuesday. Check out the other products that teachers have created to tackle the Common Core State Standards.
