Prevent Summer Math Slide: Going into 2nd Grade Daily Math Problems

Math Summer Review for 2nd Grade

School ended Friday, June 15th and my elementary school has helpfully supplied me with summer math homework for my son who will be entering 2nd grade. We get one problem per day and as my other kids went through this, we found that it’s easier to do one week at a time.

I will be sharing these all summer but my son will also be doing Daily Word Problems, Grade 2.

Monday, June 18

Write down all the combinations of numbers that add up to 10.

Tuesday, June 19

Write all of the odd numbers starting with 15 and counting to 55.

Wednesday, June 20

Eight turkeys crossed the street. How many legs is that?

Thursday, June 21

Write all of the 2-digit numbers with 9 in the tenth place.

Friday, June 22

Pick a math activity from this site.

Saturday, June 23

Skip count by 5′s. Start with 35. End with 120.

Sunday, June 24

Explore K-2 activities at this site. Play Ten Frames.

    One of our teachers printed out these summer math packets

    I put them in a 3 ring binder with a simple incentive program – every 2 weeks something fun – game night/movie night etc – capped off with Sundaes at end of summer.

    Does your school e-mail them to you? Do you know
    where they got the word problems? I have twin 9 yrs.
    olds that are going into 4th grade. I bought Singapore
    math books for the summer.
    I wish our school had done something like that.
    What about reading incentives also. Did your school do something for the summer also?
    Does your school or a friend’s school do the Battle of the books competition? I would like our school to do this but want to know more about it.
    Thank Kim

    • Hi Kim,
      We get summer math from our school but not for every grade. We also get summer reading assignments, but again, not for every grade. Our public library has a great summer reading program with prizes; try yours.

      For word problems, I like Daily Word Problems by Evan Moore. Singapore Math also has a word problem workbook but it’s not as fun as Daily Word Problems.

      Sorry, we don’t have Battle of the Books competition at our school so not sure what that is. We do March Madness as a reading competition:

    These are great! Will do these with my daughter tonight. We got a calendar with daily fun learning activities for summer too. I think it is a good idea to do them all on one day also. All the kids in my daughter’s school also got a journal to write and illustrate an alphabet book which will all be on display in Sept. She is so looking forward to doing it. She is making her’s with a storms and natural disasters theme – her idea – so proud, bragging a little here : )
