I like to give my students my Daily Practice sheets for morning work while I collect homework and take attendance. Daily Practice for Second Grade is the perfect way to get your second graders warmed up each and every day. It is also great for homework or extra practice while you teach a small group.  It is filled with rigorous and meaningful spiral review concepts that target common core standards.  It covers a wide array of standards.  My students need consist review in order for them to remember the skills that I taught them. It has 22 English language arts pages and 23 math pages all designed with adorable seasonal graphics.

2nd Grade Product Swap & Blog Hop

Welcome to the second grade product swap and blog hop! EIGHTEEN wonderful second grade bloggers have joined together to swap and review each other's products.  Best of all, we are giving away all of the products to one lucky winner!  

If you are looking for the start of the hop, head over to see Casey at Second Grade Math Maniac to start hopping.  As you check out all the fabulous products, make sure to follow each blog on Bloglovin' as well.  There will be a Rafflecopter at the last stop.  This is where you can enter to win all of the products being reviewed!

I am so excited to be paired up with Brandi Miller from Success n Second Grade.  She has tons of great ideas on her blog!  The first product that I used with my students is the March Sentence Scramble.  It is a great literacy center for those students who need extra practice on writing complete sentences with correct end punctuation.  It is especially good for my students since I have many EL students that struggle with writing complete sentences.   The students unscramble the sentence and use the recording sheets provided in the packet. The packet contains 4 sentences that have a St. Patrick's Day theme and 4 sentences that have a reading theme.  Click on the picture below and it will take you to Brandi's TPT store.

 Here is a picture of laminating the March sentences.

I quick snapped some pictures of some sentences that the students completed.  I love how the student in the bottom picture added his own words. 

The next product I had my students use for a center is Crazy for Capitalization. 


Students write the word that should be capitalized or you can choose the recording sheet where they write the word as well as why it needs to be capitalized. This is a great center for differentiating with your students.  Our district is big on differentiating.   It also has an answer key included so after you laminate and cut the center, you are all ready!  It would make a great addition to any classroom for a center on capitalization.

Click the button below to head over to....

I have a counting money FREEBIE for my Facebook fans.  Click the picture below to grab your freebie on counting money for second grade.   It has money word problems that are aligned with the Common Core Math Standard 2.MD.8--solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.

St. Patrick's Day Counting Money Freebie

I made this St. Patrick's Day counting money math center to share with you.  This week we will be busy writing about the leprechaun and watching the mischievous things that he will be doing in our classroom.  I love to see my students' reactions when they see the various things that the leprechaun does in our room.  I like to leave out a little hat that he has left behind and we use it to try to trap him.  I also make little footprints out of green paint and sprinkle gold glitter for my students to discover.

You can get the water bottle labels free at Amanda's Parties To Go.  She has a ton of fantastic party ideas and has many amazing freebies.  Head on over to her blog and check it out.  What are you doing in your classroom for St. Patrick's Day?  I will love to hear your plans.
If you need more activities for counting money, check out my unit in my TPT store.  Click on the preview for additional free money
