The first day of school is very special, but the second day of second grade is just as important! Each year on the second day of school, my second graders and I celebrate the excitement of being in second grade.
You could also use this packet to celebrate the second week of school!
I use this packet for several activities throughout the day. It includes:
~2 Many Words (create new words from the letters in 'second grade')
~2 Wishes (a genie grants you 2 wishes, what will they be?)
~Measurement is 2 Much Fun (measure 2 inches and 2 centimeters)
~These 2 Belong 2gether (match words that often come in pairs)
~2 Many Favorites (answer a variety of questions twice)
~Skip Counting by 2's
~2 Sides 2 Every Story (plan and write a story with a partner)
~Time 2 Tell Time (review hour hand, minute hand on a clock)
~A Poem 2 Enjoy (read a poem about pairs, then create your own)
~Recipe for Success in Second Grade (handouts from the teacher. I also give my students a bag of trail mix representing all the ingredients.)
