FREE MISC. LESSON – “Common Core Morning Work – Grade 2 ~ Christmas Edition”

by Primary “Teach”spiration

2nd Grade


xmas common core grade 2


This is my FREE Christmas Edition of Common Core Morning Work – Grade 2. It includes both English Language Arts & math. Every problem is coded with its Common Core State Standard. It has a complete answer key! This one week of CCSS morning work is great to use during the final week before winter break or any time during the holiday season! It is a sample of my yearlong units as described below:

Let your second graders’ morning work actually work for them to master essential Common Core English Language Arts and Math skills by the end of the year through continual daily review. This strategy always produced amazing results with my second graders, because they didn’t forget what they had learned.

Common Core State Standards covered include:
*ELA – W.2.5, L.2.1, L.2.2
*Math – All Grade 2 Standards as the year progresses

The Language Arts Daily Edit portion of each printable provides two sentences to be edited (using editing marks) and then rewritten correctly as edited. It is more than just a simple “Fix the Sentence” activity. The sentences are designed to practice and spiral review the ELA Common Core Standards of editing, grammar usage, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling patterns. The comprehensive daily editing increases in difficulty and becomes
second-nature over time, which helps to strengthen writing abilities in all areas. The sentences are aligned with the READING STREET reading series units, but can be used effectively with any second grade language arts program.

The Math Review portion is designed to practice and spiral review ALL Second Grade Common Core Standards in a repetitive format that increases in difficulty over time, including 5 addition and/or subtraction facts on every page.


This Freebie is a one week sample of my yearlong units.

Included are:
*5 Morning Work practice pages
*Answer Key
*Resource Background
*How To Use Common Core Morning Work
*Editing Marks poster -will serve as a constant reference for
students; can be copied for each student, posted in the class-
room or center, or projected as a transparency.
