Tammie Wright saw the Wonders First Grade page on this site and asked if I was was planning to create the same packets for second grade. I  initially started with Unit 3 because that is where many teachers  indicated that that's where they were in the program at the time, but if you need materials from earlier lessons, please let me know.  Since second grade has twice the number of high frequency words, each packet contains nine pages of activities and opportunities for children to explore the high frequency words for the week. I decided to add dictionary skills to the mix. Thanks, Tammie! I'm so glad to hear that these are helping your students.

Feel free to download and reproduce these materials for your own personal classroom use, but please leave my name at the bottom of each page. Please note that since I don't have students who use these, there may be a few occasional typos, so let me know if you find any! My kids were always sure to point out my bloopers in the old days and thought they were pretty smart!

I plan to add supplemental activities for each week based on the phonics/spelling skill listed in the matrix. I will also add readers and shared reading book, (if you would like them for children who still need the additional practice) and some poems/songs that focus on the phonics skills or lesson vocabulary words.

Let me know if you have other requests for this series:carl1404@msn.com. Since I am a retired reading specialist I don't have access to the teacher's manuals, but the matrix is packed with information that will allow me to enrich your program through this web page.
 

Thanks for providing the opportunity to help you help yourselves and your children. Enjoy!

Mc-Graw Hill Wonders 2nd Grade CD

In an effort to make things more convenient for second grade teachers I decided to create a CD with all of the supplemental materials on it. Unit lessons have a nine page activity packet, phonics and/or spelling practice activities outlined in the second grade matrix and a vocabulary poem for independent practice of high frequency words and/or phonics skills in context. Included on the CD are reproducible instruction sets for word families, r-Controlled vowels, blends, contractions, suffixes, plural nouns, comparative endings, digraphs, diphthongs, and silent letters. Everything is on one CD in individual Unit/Lesson folders for easy access. A recent addition to the CD is a 37 page collection of poems to go with each lesson.

Contact me for group discount on multiple copies for your school.
