2nd Grade Summer Reading

Students entering 2nd grade must read three (3) books from the following list, and two (2) additional books of their choice over the summer. Please color a picture of your favorite scene, write the name of your book, the author of your book, list the main characters, and write one sentence about your book. Please do this for each of the five books; the information can be put on the same paper as your drawing or use separate pieces of paper.

2nd Grade Summer Math

Students entering 2nd grade must complete the math addition and subtraction worksheets. Please bring them with you on the first day of school. Please consider using math flashcards over the summer. Flashcards with basic addition and subtraction facts are useful skills for 2nd graders. Coin identification is also an essential 2nd grade skill, so any time there is an exchange of money, show your child the coins and name them!
