My 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
and worksheets. These words were carefully chosen after researching both online and hard-copy published resources.
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, both in wonderful stories from his own imagination, and in factual reports from the world around him.
