2nd Grade Math: Clock Work & Other Math Work

I saw this wonderful clock idea at Suddenly 2nd Grade -- The blog appears not to be up and running any more.

Anyway, LD has been working on time in intervals of 5 minutes.  This idea and the clock printout made by Mrs. Nielson is  great.  She has the bottom sheet available to print out too, but when we made it I felt it'd be better for LD to write the numbers himself.

You can make telling time worksheets at

Someone asked me what workbook we use for math these day and whether we still use Right Start Math.  I love Right Start, but this year we veered away from it.  We only use it occasionally. Instead we went through Spectrum Math. He is just about done with the entire book, so as we finish that up he also works through a lot of worksheets that I have printed out from the Internet.

We continue to use the free Montessori based addition and subtraction worksheets (for adding or subtracting numbers up into the thousands) that I came across. See the picture below.

And we also use multiplication sheets that practice skills through the 6 times tables.
Here's a photo of what he works through most days:
