About this Resource
This resource is a unique way to get your students warmed up in the morning. The math is aligned to 2nd grade Common Core Standards and meant to be a review. If you teach 3rd grade, this might also work for you depending on your students’ needs. (We do have a 3rd grade version!)

Each month contains 4-5 weeks of math morning work, which will have a theme around the season, national holidays, or events associated with that particular month. The morning work is focused on Math with a sprinkle of Science, a pinch of grammar, and a dash of Daily/Weekly Updates to keep your students engaged and open doors for conversations. At the beginning of the year, the math will be mostly 1st Grade review and increase in difficulty as the year goes progresses. However, the morning work is intended to be a review to keep students engaged, build confidence, and complete with independence.

The focus for each day was created based on fundamental needs I noticed in my classroom of 3rd graders: Place Value, Number Sense, and Fractions. While these are not the only areas addressed, they are the main focus. The 2nd Grade Morning Work follows the 2nd grade standards while leading up to these areas students will cover in the upper grades. Each week follows the same routine and structure:

*Mathematician Monday- Problems are centered around 1st grade math review and problems leading up to the understanding of more complex problems, especially Multiplication & Division. In the 3rd-5th Grade morning work, it is called Multiplication Monday.

*Base Ten Tuesday- All about the Base of our Number System. These problems are centered around our number system and place value.

*Wordless Wednesday- No Word Problems! Students have 3 problems without words.

*Throwback Thursday- Review Day! Other days may offer a review problem, but Thursdays have problems that may come from 1st grade or the beginning of the year. I also added problems from other standards such as Measurement, Data, Geometry, and Number Patterns.

*Fun Friday- Nothing says Fun Friday like Math! There is always a need to review. By keeping it short and sweet and including a fun personal question, this may help build your students’ confidence with different math skills while also keeping it fresh. The problems may also lead up to the understanding of Fractions in 3rd grade.

I created this resource in my classroom because I saw a need to continuously review these key areas. By following this same structure each week, students know what to expect while they are also building their confidence in these essential math areas. I have also found several other benefits from this morning work routine:

*Routine!-My students knew exactly what to do when they come in the classroom.

*Short & Sweet- There are only a few problems so it shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes. This will also let you know if students are still having difficulty with a certain skill.
Fewer Copies- Only one sheet of paper for the whole week! (Copy front and back)

*A Weekly Grade-My students know this and do not want to do the work for homework or have a poor grade. This helped get them started right away in the morning. I also go over the problems each morning and allowed students to fix their work before turning it in. In my opinion, this is beneficial because it keeps the students engaged as we go over it, ESPECIALLY if they had difficulty with it. This was also beneficial for students because if they paid attention and “added on to their thinking,” they will earn a good grade that will be added weekly. For students that already struggle, this is confidence building and motivating.

I hope this resource works for you! Please be sure to FOLLOW US so you get the email when the rest of this bundle comes out! As we continue to work on the rest of this series, we would love to hear what works for you. You can contact us at with any questions, comments, or feedback.
