Building Classroom Community for Second Grade - ClassComm2

The Building Classroom Community Unit for Second Grade consists of eight read alouds. Each lesson is intended for multiple days so that from the beginning students are exposed to close reading and the value of multiple readings. We believe the first eight read alouds, or roughly the first two months of school, are critical to setting the tone of your classroom community, read aloud procedures, and expectations for engagement.
