  • Go to your schools website or principal and get a list of the 2nd grade curriculum. Find out what method they teach for cursive too so you get the right workbooks. Spectrum and Evan Moore make excellent workbooks. Work on timed math facts, + and - to 18 for math.

  • Buy plenty of workbooks from the Dollar Tree, School Supply Store, even bookstore that's geared towards 2nd graders. Have her do about 2 pages a day or every other day. Also purchase flashcards & find some printable worksheets on the web.

  • There's not much to know for second grade, but if you're worried, you can look up the state standards and make sure she's ready for those skills by the time she gets to second grade.
