Are You Smarter Than a 2nd Grader?

I know, you expected to see a different grade up there.  But in this case, it’s the 2nd grade that my 5th graders can learn from.


I’ve been meaning to share this picture for a couple of months now, because it’s such a great reminder of how to use punctuation correctly.


This poster hangs outside Mrs. Driscoll’s second grade class. I know Mrs. Dix has a similar one that’s called “No More Weird Capitals!”

We walk by this everyday on our way back from our specials and lunch, and I keep thinking we need one in our classroom, too.  I know that kiddos learn these things early on, but have such a hard time remembering to show that in their writing!!

So maybe I need to ask my 5th graders that question when they are editing, did you show that you’re smarter than a 2nd grader? 🙂

  1. I love this post Mrs. Bearden! Thanks for the reminder that we can always learn from all of the students at Robinson, not just the fifth grade. We need to talk about this as we are editing too! Thanks for sharing!
