I went from 4th to 2nd and back up again. I used a lot of my 4th
grade materials in 2nd, and a lot of my 2nd grade materials in
4th. Chances are you will have students on 2nd grade reading
level at the beginning of the year.
I would buy books for my reading center. I suspect you probably
don't have as many upper level books as you do lower level books.
Take advantage of that first Scholastic book order and add to
it. You will have some higher readers too, so make sure you have
a nice variety ranging from 2nd to 6th grade reading level. Mae
