Q: Will this writing center work in my 2nd grade classroom?
A: I have had many 2nd grade teachers tell me that their class uses (and loves) my writing center activities. Since writing is automatically differentiated, this will work well in may different grade levels. I have included numerous paper options, so it will challenge most students not only in kindergarten and 1st grade, but also in 2nd grade.
