My first scoop is my August Daily Practice. I use it for morning work and it is aligned with the common core standards. My students complete them first thing in the morning while I collect homework and take attendance and lunch count. Sometimes for a change of pace, they will complete it for homework. They are a great review to review skills needed for second grade.

The August monthly packet reviews many first grade standards. The monthly packets get more difficult as the school year progresses. I have discounted it 20% off for this weekend.
My second scoop goes to my Daily Math Warm Ups which is my number one seller. I love this because it covers the necessary math skills for second grade. It is a great spiral review for second grade. My students are able to complete them independently and feel successful in math.. I like the format because it is simple and uses very little ink. There is no prep--just print and go.
Click on the picture and go to the preview for your free math sample pages for 2nd grade. The first trimester has 2 versions. One version has regrouping and the other version has no regrouping since we all teach these skills at different times. It is all included in the packet for one price. Leave a comment below with your email address and I will choose 3 lucky winners to receive my First Trimester Math Warm Ups. I will choose the winners Sunday , August 10, 2014 before I go to bed.
The third scoop goes to Text Based Evidence Reading Passages by Miss DeCarbo. I love her Text Based Evidence Reading Passages! She has created 4 packets that I use with my class.
My students read the story and go back and highlight and look for evidence. Theses passages allow them to practice this skill in a fun and engaging manner. I like to project the stories on my Smart Board and we practice this skill together.
