Here are 28 pages of second grade vocabulary core standards with review activities. The activities have a range of skills such as using the dictionary to find meanings and parts of speech as well as using the words in context or recognizing word parts.
I included some academic words and other words I felt my second graders should know for testing. I created this for my 2nd grade ESL students as a test-prep activity because I felt they needed more vocabulary support. Suggestions for use that I included with the original download recommend teachers to use the items in small amounts or a page at a time in a GUIDED venue. This product is not best utilized as a set of worksheets to send with students to do on their own. It would work very well as one piece of instruction in an intervention block.
Its use can be spread over several weeks or over several days It's a great product to help students get ready for ELA testing . I have had great results with my intermediate English learners with this product in both second and third grades.
It comes without answer key.
I added core standards and ESL Insights; a guide for teachers of ELLs.

Capitalize holidays, product names, and geographic names.
Use commas in greetings and closings of letters.
Use an apostrophe to form contractions and frequently occurring possessives.
Generalize learned spelling patterns when writing words (e.g., cage → badge; boy → boil).
Consult reference materials, including beginning dictionaries, as needed to check and correct spellings.
Use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
Determine the meaning of the new word formed when a known prefix is added to a known word (e.g., happy/unhappy, tell/retell).
Use a known root word as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word with the same root (e.g., addition, additional).
Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
Use glossaries and beginning dictionaries, both print and digital, to determine or clarify the meaning of words and phrases.
Identify real-life connections between words and their use (e.g., describe foods that are spicy or juicy).
Distinguish shades of meaning among closely related verbs (e.g., toss, throw, hurl) and closely related adjectives (e.g., thin, slender, skinny, scrawny).
