    Hi, I am teaching grade two for the first time next year (it is also my first full time teaching assignment) and I was wondering what essentials you would recommend for a 2nd grade classroom (besides lots and lots of books). Thanks

    Not much different from 3rd grade. Second graders are becoming very independent, but still have that "love the teacher" quality.
    Basics:
    Word Wall
    ABC line
    Number line (to 100)
    Ordinal number line (to 20)
    Hundreds chart
    Calendar
    Manipulatives
    Dictionaries
    Books

    Other things really depend on what you plan to do with your kids (behavior plan, stations/centers, etc...)

    Reading comprehension materials that you can refer to. Graphic organizers of all kinds. They are sensitive at this age and love you, so rewards are nice.
