I have been teaching 1st grade for the last 3 years and have been "promoted" to second grade for the upcoming school year. I am a little nervous, as I have zero experience with second graders. I was hoping that some teachers with second grade experience might be able to give me some tips. A big question I have is about the paper I use for writing. I am considering using wide-ruled notebook paper for writing, instead of the paper with the very wide lines and a dotted middle line. What does anyone think of this? Can a second grader handle this type of paper? What other ideas or tricks does anyone have for me?
