Second grade is a pivotal year in math education. Students need to master single-digit addition and subtraction within 20 at this level, because those same operations with two-digit numbers will require fluency with basic addition and subtraction. Kids in this age aren’t getting that much homework yet, but some may need extra 2nd grade math worksheets to augment their learning.
Luckily, not many second-graders are quite as jaded toward math work at home. Commercial workbooks can be a good source of additional learning, and if your child really needs critical math attention, a tablet-based, online tutoring service can provide an incredible boost. But if you are simply looking for some free 2nd grade math worksheets for daily practice, and you don’t want to go through much trouble finding them, you have some options.
The Internet is loaded with math websites offering downloadable worksheets. Here two such sites that offer second-grade math worksheets for free:
This activity challenges kids to master a worksheet of problems before moving on to the next. You provide the worksheet, start your watch, and see how far your child can get in a minute or how quickly he or she can finish the whole worksheet. You will use the worksheet for several days in a row as the student tries to improve on previous performances, thus easing your burden on finding or creating worksheets (instead of many per week, you will need just one or two).
If you are familiar with Microsoft Excel, you can easily create your own math worksheets using the spreadsheet’s random number generator. Here’s how to make a simple addition worksheet:
You can tinker with the RANDBETWEEN function to produce a range of numbers that will suit your worksheet needs.
