* Second grade classroom teachers love these for math centers and math rotations.

* Math specialists, math coaches, and math intervention teachers, use these one on one or with small groups and find the activities to be a fun and effective way to practice math vocabulary, critical thinking, and mental math. The solve and sort activities are great for a student to use independently while you're helping another student who needs some extra attention from you.

* Review a topic and keep your students engaged by playing a game of Teacher vs. The Class on your interactive board or in a small group.

* Great for early finishers or challenge work in second grade or remediation with RtI in third and fourth grade.

* This is a great pack for second grade homeschooling - lots of variety, and an assortment of some activities to do with your child and others for your child to complete independently.

* The 30 addition, subtraction, and place value games are easy to digitize with your favorite apps and programs. Just take a screenshot or print a single page choosing "Print as PDF" and they're ready to use on digital devices! Use them in your classroom, post them on your password-protected classroom website, or send them to families via email.

* If you're sending home printable packs for extended absences or vacations, you'll be glad to know that ink-saving blackline versions are also included for most of these activities!
