In second grade students, through the help of most reading programs, can use their reading skills to help them sound out words. At this point students are seeing roughly a dozen new words a week. This is good pace and just hope that a student does not miss a significant amount of time. We often encourage students to begin by identifying any key root words first and then follow that up with looking at prefixes and suffixes. This makes the process of learning new terms very digestible. Most vocabulary at this level can seem more familiar, using this technique. Students can also get creative with learning words in chunks. Over time they will find a method that works best for them. These worksheets will help second grade students learn important words quickly.

Teachers during second grade must put in all efforts to build the basic vocabulary of students and to make them spell short words correctly. Second graders usually encounter a little difficulty in correctly spelling many words. Therefore, some spelling tips are given below that will help many second graders to easily spell words:
Teachers and parents of second graders must advise students to read more bedtime stories, fiction, and other easy books. While reading, they are likely to locate and learn new words along with their correct spellings.
Dividing Words into Parts
Second graders must be taught to divide the words into smaller parts. Second-graders should be able to divide difficult and hard words into parts and then spell each part individually. Doing this will help them to easily learn and memorize the spellings of difficult words.
Playing Words Games
As second graders are obsessed with games, Parents and teachers should try to teach them spellings with the help of such productive games. Scrabble, crosswords and other such games will help students to learn the spellings of new words while also enjoying their learning.
Spell Out Loud
It is always preferred to spell words aloud, as it not only boosts one's confidence but also increases the probability of correct spellings. By spelling out loud, one can arrange the order of the letters in word resulting in correct spellings.
During second grade, once a week a spelling class must be arranged in which difficult words should be displayed on attractive banners. Each student should spell these aloud since doing this will make the students able enough to learn spellings of many words quickly.
