    I'm teaching 2nd grade this year and I'm trying to think of some meaningful morning work for the first month. Any suggestions? Any skill books you recommend I buy to use for quick, yet meaningful morning work?

    I like Drops in a Bucket. I alternate between the language and math daily.

    Any editing work is good. I used to do a continuing story and often used the students' names in it. They loved it. I also pretended that someone had crept in during the night to write the story and I acted surprised at what it contained. It was fun.

    I also used jumbled spelling words, fill-in-the blank for spelling or vocab.
