Foundational Reading Lesson - Identify the Main Purpose of a Text, Including what the Author wants to Answer, Explain, or Describe, Grade 2

  • Activity 1 / Descriptive Writing Worksheet: Part 2

    Writing is an art, and writers often express their emotions through beautifully constructed sentences and thought-provoking words. Sometimes, writers write just to give more information about a particular person, event, or object. In this worksheet, your kids will learn about the different kinds of writing; descriptive writing, explanatory writing and persuasive writing. Read the short descriptive text to them, and then check the answers to the questions at the bottom of the page.

  • Activity 2 / Explanatory Writing Worksheet

    Using this worksheet, you can easily teach your kids about the different kinds of writing that we have. In a descriptive writing, a writer writes to describe a situation. An explanatory writing exists to tell the readers how to do something. And a persuasive writing tries to convince the readers to do or think in a certain type of way. Read the short piece of explanatory text to your kids and then help them answer the questions by circling the correct answer.

So engaging
We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
