Degrees and Certifications:
Second Graders are engaged in many different activities during Reading
Workshop such as guided reading, word study, independent reading, and
reading response. Although guided reading is differentiated, all students are

about how text is organized and what the author does to keep readers
interested. Throughout our various Units of Study, we also read aloud a variety of texts and engage children in
