This week in math we are working on counting numbers by 5’s and 10’s and comparing them using the symbols <,>, = .
For extra practice check out this
game! (play option “whole numbers”)
Optional IXL tabs to work on include:
A.1 Skip Counting
A.2 Skip Counting Sequences
A.3 Counting Patterns – up to 100
B.1 Comparing numbers up to 100
This week in math we are reviewing how to represent numbers (0 – 99) using base 10 blocks and tens frames.
We are also using our hundred chart to help us find numbers that are 1 more, 1 less, 10 more and 10 less.
Welcome to 2b! I am looking forward to seeing everyone Wednesday, September 13th at curriculum night. Looking forward to a great year.
This week in math we are learning about 2d shapes!
Students are learning the different names of many 2d shapes and their attributes.
We are also learning about symmetry.
See 2b hard at work at our geometry stations…
This week we are learning how to add two-digit numbers that require REGROUPING.
REGROUPING is what you may have learned as “carrying”. However, in order to understand the concept, we are not simply putting a little bitty one on top of the next column. In REGROUPING, we draw out the numbers using base ten representation and circle when our ones create a “ten”. Then we can count our tens and our ones.
Check out this fantastic teaching video to understand the concept of REGROUPING:
Once you understand the process, it is time for some practice!!!
This page gives a detailed explanation of how students learn addition, with good visuals to understand why it is taught a certain way.
This week, we are reviewing our PLACE VALUE and representing numbers greater than 100. To do this, we will be practicing with base ten blocks to visualize the value of the digits in the larger number.
This video will review 2-digit and 3-digit place value.
Here are some games to play!
FRUIT SHOOT – HARD LEVEL
This week we are learning about
Linear measurement is about measuring
lengths, widths, and heights.
In Grade Two, we are being introduced to
centimeter and meter. We are learning how to use a ruler properly but also we are learning how to estimate measurements using our bodies.
Did you know a centimeter is about the width of a child’s thumbnail?
Did you know that a meter is about the length of a child’s arm-span?
Have fun this week by estimating and measuring lengths around the house!
This week we will learn about fact families.
Students should continue to practice on Reflex Math. Here is another fun game to play to practice addition and subtraction:
