Hi everyone! I just accepted a job teaching 2nd grade this past week. I have been teaching Kindergarten so I really don't know 2nd grade at all, and I'm in a very high poverty area. I want to make sure I don't expect too little of my students, or act too cutesy or young for my students. I was wondering about my word wall. I have one set up, but do most of you start with 1st grade words up or do you review them and then add on 2nd grade words? What words do I use for 2nd grade? Do I just use the Dolch list and do a few a week? I have a bunch of Step Into Reading and I Can Read leveled books, are students coming in to 2nd grade on level 2 mostly, or level 1? What will I need to have the first week? I'm also in a portable, so are there any ideas for making the best of that? Thanks so much, I appreciate any help you can give me!
