I'm used to fourth graders - what are the best resources to prepare for my first time teaching second grade?

I’ve just found out I’ll be teaching second grade next year – YAY! The only problem is that most of my experience is with older children (fourth grade especially). I want to be as prepared as possible; what are the best resources for understanding second graders and planning the year? I’m looking especially for things related to daily routines/activities but would also appreciate suggestions related to academics, child development, ways of communicating - anything regarding kids in this age group (NOT general teaching resources; I have plenty of those). In addition, this is in a very low-income area so if there is anything that will help me with younger kids in a “high needs” school (urban, not rural) that would be great. Thank you!
Also, if you could direct me to an easily printable version of the Common Core State Standards that would be awesome; I can only find them broken up into four or five fifteen page documents for each subject.
