Miss Corrigan's Second Grade Class

  • Welcome to 2nd Grade!
    I am looking forward to working with you and your child this upcoming year. Here are some tips for you to use with your child to keep their skills fresh over the summer. This will help prepare them to succeed in 2nd grade!

    Math 

    A big focus in 2nd grade math is addition and subtraction. The sooner your child memorizes basic addition and subtraction math facts – the better! I highly recommend using flash cards to help your child begin to memorize these facts, and I would begin with adding 1 or 2 to a given number 1-9. Once your child is solid with these facts move on to adding 3 or 4 to a given number 1 – 9. You can make flash cards using index cards, scratch paper, etc. and keep them in a plastic bag in the car. While you drive to various activities over the summer your child can practice these math facts!

    Reading 

    In 2nd grade, we really “take off” with reading, and it is amazing to see the amount of growth your young reader will make by the end of the year! To prepare for this reading journey, I recommend reading as much as you can over the summer. The public library is a great resource for new books, as well as reading incentive programs to encourage (and reward!) reading. In addition to reading real books often, reading sight words at home is a wonderful way to prepare for 2nd grade. I have included links below that will help your child practice reading, writing, and spelling sight words from first grade.

    In addition, flash cards is another great way to practice and learn sight words. You could prepare another bag of flash cards to keep in the car to practice sight words as you drive around over the summer, too!

    Many of these reading and math activities can also be found at stores in workbook form if you are looking for additional practice and preparation for 2nd grade. There is a great teaching supply store at 35th Ave and Glendale, but they can be found at many other stores as well.


    Important Dates: 

    August 2nd – Meet the Teacher Night

    August 6th – First Day of School


    I wish you all a safe, relaxing, and FUN summer!



    Learning Together,
