Second Grade Resources

Second graders represent masters of the basics they learned in previous grades. While 7-year-olds may have had choppy reading capabilities in first grade, devouring children’s books is now the norm. Second-grade students can take on more complicated math problems, utilize double-digits and count by multiples of twos, threes and fours. The Learning Library is chock-full of tools—enticing worksheets, constructive online games, teacher-curated lesson plans and more—to assist young learners build upon the basics.

Resources for Second Grade Success

As second-graders start to recognize more of the outer world’s subtleties and expand their inner world’s imagination, it’s important to have energizing educational lessons that match that growth. The Learning Library’s resources for second-graders are catered to their specific level, where academic concepts become more refined. Among the resources are informational games that make learning feel like playtime, lesson plans developed by licensed educators, and other participation-based activities that support engaged learning.

Available online activities teach kids how to properly use an apostrophe, measure length in inches, compare two subjects, and more. For more visual learners, games like Sentence Builder: Adjectives and Adverbs teach second-graders the difference between adjectives and adverbs by helping Floyd, a purple dog, build a wall up a rugged peak. Children can practice the practical skill of counting money with a digital piggy bank or try out other popular games.

Teachers, tutors and parents can confidently teach new topics with thought-out lesson plans and worksheets. Printable workbooks allow for a closer inspection of grammar, math, spelling and other topics. These are just a few of the many useful tools the Learning Library provides to ensure second-graders continue to build upon nuts and bolts.
