list of second grade spelling words is a great resource for parents,
teachers and students. Use these words for oral and
practice, for spelling games
Remember to teach 2nd graders only a few words at a time. About 8-10 words per week is good for most 2nd graders. When possible, group words in families, such as light, night, and right.
Encourage your child to use his spelling words often, in wonderful stories from his own imagination!
