What exactly should kids learn and review at home to be successful in the elementary school classroom? If you’re the parent of a second grader, you know that keeping up with the curriculum and helping your child with schoolwork can be a challenge. Cracking the Second Grade shows you how to prepare your child for the competitive world of today's schools. It includes tutoring tips and teaching instructions for parents as well as drills, exercises, and activities that parents and kids can do together.

Cracking the Second Grade contains two units — one for math and one for reading. Each unit includes lessons that cover many grade-appropriate skills for that subject. Each lesson offers a skill review for parents and children, and a wide variety of practice activities for kids.
