Second Grade Writing  Worksheets 

Second Grade Writing Story outline about

Here's one of our favorite second grade writing worksheets. Why does this one work so well? Because we give students the framework for a great story and they "make it their own."




If you've ever asked students, of just about any age, to simply "write a story," the standard reply you'll receive is, "I don't know what to write about."

This worksheet takes care of that problem! This is an individualized fill-in-the-blank exercise, similar to those you may have played at a party. It's a fun way to ask students to read, spell and write.
