In sports, coaches are fond of telling their young athletes, “There’s no substitute for practice!” The same can be said by parents and teachers to students with regard to education. This is particularly true when those students are second-graders and the educational topic is writing.
Second-grade writing worksheets offer myriad options for improving writing proficiency, from interesting creative writing story prompts to refresher lessons on adjectives, adverbs, homophones, diphthongs, and more.
After completing some of these worksheets, consider challenging your second-grader with some writing activities that are based on things happening in his life. For instance, have him hone his fiction-writing skills by writing a one-page letter to his favorite stuffed animal, then review the text and circle all the verbs.
Another idea: After he watches his favorite cartoon, tell him to immediately grab a pencil and paper and summarize the episode with a four-paragraph essay, complete with an introduction and conclusion. Then have him go back over each sentence and underline the subject, circle the predicate, and put a triangle around every adjective.
Not only will these worksheets and real-world activities make your child an all-around better writer, but he’ll slowly come around to the idea that writing doesn’t have to be a chore.
