These no-prep Halloween worksheets for second grade are perfect for working on math and literacy skills with a fun holiday theme.
It’s that time of year again: the leaves are changing color, the air is getting colder, and pumpkin-flavored everything is starting to pop up in stores. Yes, autumn has officially arrived, and with it comes one of America’s favorite holidays: Halloween!
For many families, this means costumes, decorations, treats—and plenty of learning opportunities. That’s because Halloween isn’t just about spooky costumes and trick-or-treating; it’s also a great time for practicing math and literacy skills.
There are plenty of fun Halloween worksheets that can help second graders brush up on their skills throughout October.
These free printables will help your second graders work on ABC order, ordering 3-digit numbers, 2-digit addition, digraphs, and much more!
While these worksheets are designed to meet second grade goals, they can be used with younger kids who are ready for a challenge and with older kids who need a little extra practice.
