Why do we do this?
Research shows that language skills are the foundation for literacy and overall academic success. This is why it is so important to use daily language resources for the 2nd grade classroom. We teach students grammar skills, like capitalization, syllabication and abbreviations but we also must give them time to practice those skills independently.
I have found that using daily language resources for the 2nd grade classroom is the perfect morning work. There are so many tasks that we must take care of as teachers first thing in the morning…attendance, lunch counts, etc. Things get hectic so I love to have something out and ready for my students when they walk in the door. Obviously this needs to be an independent task, so these worksheets are perfect. They build throughout the year as new skills are taught.
So Many Skills
The great thing about these daily language resources for the 2nd grade classroom is that they cover a variety of skills. We are often used to daily language only covering simple grammar. With these resources you get 25 skills covered throughout the month. I have included everything from homophones to determining the missing question.
We all know that our students come to us at all different levels of abilities. As teachers we are tasked with meeting them where they are and then challenging them to grow. My daily language resource for the 2nd grade classroom is easily adaptable for all skill levels. You can simply pick and choose the sections you want created, mark through more challenging directions or have students pair up and work together if needed.
Easy to Grade
With the idea of making your life easier, I have included answer documents for every page of these daily language resources for the 2nd grade classroom. These are ready to copy and go so that your mornings can start to run smoothly.
