    3. Arizona’s English Language Arts Standards work together in a clear progression
    from kindergarten through 12th grade. This document provides a brief overview of
    the skills a student will learn in 2nd grade. Each standard builds on the standard
    that came before and towards the standard that comes in the next grade level.
    Each standard is expected to be taught as appropriate for the grade-level. Some
    standards appear to have similar wording at multiple grade levels; however, it is
    understood that they are to be applied with increased focus to progressively more
    challenging texts and tasks.
