  • 1. Second Grade Writing Unit
    Review Game
    By Christine Filipovich
  • 2. Exciting sentences
    • We can add words called adjectives to make our sentences more interesting.
    • 3. These words help to describe things to readers so they can imagine what we mean.
  • Which sentence is better?
    The girl ran home.
    The scared little girl dashed home quickly.
  • 4. Avoid run-on sentences.
    When a sentence goes on and on, it should be broken up into several smaller complete thoughts.
    Try to avoid using the word “and” over and over in a single sentence.
  • 5. Which one avoids run-ons?
    a. A squirrel found a nut. He hid it in the ground. Later he went back to find it. He searched everywhere, but it was gone.
    b. A squirrel found a nut and he hid it in the ground and later he went back to find it and he searched everywhere, but it was gone.
  • 6. Word Jail
    • Overused words must be locked up.

  • 8. Paragraphs need topic sentences
    Each paragraph should have one main idea.
    The topic sentence tells the reader what this paragraph will be about.
    The topic sentence is usually at the beginning of the paragraph.
  • 9. What would be a good topic sentence for this paragraph?
    Sandy can roll over. He can also shake hands. My dad taught Sandy to bring him the newspaper
    from the front porch. Sandy even barks when I say, “Speak!”
    a. My dog, Sandy, can do many tricks.
    b. I like dogs and cats.
    c. I got a new puppy for Christmas.
    d. My dad is very smart.
  • 10. Keep to the main idea
    Don’t include any sentences in your paragraph that don’t fit with the topic sentence.
  • 11. Ice cream is my favorite dessert.
    Which sentence does not belong in a paragraph with this topic sentence?
     
    Chocolate ice cream is smooth and creamy.
