The Magic of Reading

The second graders have been working very hard on their Dragon and Fairy Tale Unit this month. They read stories in their Open Court reading series as well as many additional fairy tales and fables.

The next task was to write an original fairy tale. This involved mapping out their ideas, writing a rough copy, editing, final copy, and then illustrating their stories.

This unit also included several fun art projects. The second graders designed and painted a castle cover for their fairy tale unit, painted a water color picture of an imaginary dragon, and lastly made “egg carton” dragons. This unit has been a lot of fun.
