When it comes to their craft, teachers trust one another most. In a 2014 survey distributed by the Education Week Research Center, 87 percent of teacher respondents indicated that they trust other teachers’ claims of whether curriculum is aligned with the Common Core. In sharp contrast, a mere 38 percent said they trust curriculum providers’ and publishers’ claims; and fewer than two-thirds report that they trust an independent panel of experts.

This is why Daybreak Lesson Plans lets teachers — the real-life experts — develop lesson plans for other teachers’ substitutes. We understand that people who have the hands-on experience, who have tried curriculum on real students and discovered real results, are the ones who can effectively lead the way toward enriched curriculum planning.

What Types of Lesson Plans for 2nd Grade Are Available?

Whether you’re a new teacher trying to learn the ropes or looking for a lesson plan for your substitute teacher, we have a collection of 2nd-grade lesson plans to meet all your planning needs. 

Daybreak Lesson Plans offers straightforward lesson plans that are easy for anyone to follow and perfect when you need a quick lesson plan for a substitute teacher. From 2nd-grade math lesson plans to reading plans for 2nd-grade to 2nd grade language arts lesson plans, our lessons accommodate a wide range of student abilities and learning styles.

Here are some examples of our lesson plans for 2nd grade:

  • A half-day math lesson might ask students to solve word problems using combinations of dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies.
  • A one-hour lesson plan might have students reading about and examining roller coasters.
  • A full-day lesson might intertwine geometry with the growth cycle of pumpkins.

Why Choose Daybreak Lesson Plans?

Daybreak Lesson Plans strives to make it as easy as possible for you to have a quick and straightforward lesson plan for your substitute teacher so you can take a sick day or attend an off-site training event. There certainly is no shortage of lesson plan providers available. From textbook creators to individual teachers, the market for devising and selling lesson plans is rich. That’s why it’s important to explain what sets Daybreak Lesson Plans apart:

  • Our lesson plans are only published after looking at data — that is, the actual outcomes of students learning the material in real classrooms — and only after adjustments have been made based on that data.
  • Experienced teachers who are familiar with the Common Core and its practical implications write our 2nd-grade lesson plans.
  • Lesson plans are fully scripted; that means a substitute or novice teacher can pick up the lesson and know exactly what to say and do to make that lesson meaningful to students.
  • Every lesson is carefully aligned to Common Core Standards and the applicable standards are outlined for teachers to share with students.
  • Each lesson plan takes into account different planning time needs so that lessons vary from one hour to a whole day’s worth of activities.
