What makes reading even more fun? Finding a series that you love and discussing it with your friends! Second graders are deepening their reading comprehension by joining together with others and talking about their series books. Students are noticing what books have in common, such as characters, settings, and patterns that occur across books in a series. Readers are learning how to grow "big ideas" together in their reading discussions and make predictions based on how the series tends to go. Did you know that the majority of adults who love to read for pleasure had a series that they enjoyed reading as children? With their series book discussions, second graders are well on their way to becoming lifelong readers.
