I have been looking relentlessly for good practice for Grammar skills for 2nd grade, but very tired of worksheets. I decided to make some games and practice of my own to use for assessing student knowledge of synonyms and antonyms, making plural nouns, sorting nouns and verbs, sorting nouns and adjectives, making contractions, and identifying prefixes and suffixes. I included the picture above of how I make the sorts. I usually laminate the work mat after I glue it to scrap booking paper, and add velcro so that the words will stay. You could also use construction paper too. I use these sorts year after year. The sorts can all be found on Teachers Pay Teachers, but I have one that can be downloaded for free. I use these in small groups or word work extra practice for those that might need it. You could also print the sort, and have students cut it out, sort, and paste on construction paper.
I have been a 2nd grade teacher for 9 years. I have also taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students for a combined total of 16 years. I hold a Bachelors degree in Middle Grades education where I am certified in all subject areas, a Masters degree in Early Childhood education, and a Specialist and Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership. I also hold a reading and gifted endorsement on my certificate.
In the future, I would treasure the opportunity to work as a teacher leader or mentor in a leadership position.
I am currently working as a 2nd grade GTE (Gifted and Talented) teacher but have also been a host teacher for EIP (Early Intervention Students) students for 12 years.
