Need some materials for your second grade students to work on independently? This "I Can Work By Myself" packet includes 36 pages of "print and use" activities for the first few months of the school year!

At the beginning of second grade, you need simple, easy-to-teach activities as your students re-learn their independent work skills. Since back to school time is so busy, you also need to have no-prep activities on hand so you don't spend hours cutting and assembling materials!

All of the following skills are covered in this packet:

  • Short vowel sounds
  • Digraphs
  • Consonant blends
  • R-controlled vowels
  • Long vowel sounds, CVCe words, vowel teams
  • Nouns and verbs
  • Fluency and comprehension (10 short reading passages and questions are included)
  • Writing (6 writing prompts are included)

Note about use during the pandemic: All of these activities can be done without partner or small group work. If you are keeping your students separated for social distancing, these materials are perfect for independent work. If you're doing remote learning, you may share any and all pages from this packet with students' families (via email or a secure site where families log in). You may not use this resource for teaching on Outschool.
