The following 2nd grade math worksheets address the basic concepts taught in the second grade. Concepts addressed include: money, addition, subtractions, word problems, subtraction and telling time.

You will need the Adobe reader for the following worksheets.

Second grade worksheets have been created to emphasize understanding of the concept and should not be used in isolation to teach a concept.

Each concept should be taught using math manipulatives and many concrete experiences. For instance, when teaching subtraction, use cereal, coins, jelly beans and provide many experiences with physically moving the objects and printing the number sentence (8 - 3 =5). Then move to the worksheets.

For word problems, students/learners should have an understanding of the computations required and then exposure to word problems are necessary to ensure they can use the computation in authentic situations.  

When beginning fractions, many experiences with pizzas, fraction bars and circles should be used to ensure understanding.

Fractions have two components for understanding, parts of a set (eggs, rows in gardens) and parts of the whole (pizza, chocolate bars etc.)  I have, who has, is a fun game to enhance learning.
