LearnZillion's 2nd Grade Math offering is a series of video lessons that are aligned to several Grade 2 Common Core math standards. As with all videos on LearnZillion, each one begins with an objective, a brief review of prerequisite skills, and clarification of some common misconceptions. Lessons then proceed with direct instruction and supporting whiteboard-style graphics. Videos are brief enough to keep second-graders interested, yet detailed enough to cover important skills. The examples and drawings help explain concepts in an age-appropriate way.

To use these in your classroom, find a lesson that aligns to your instruction -- there should be plenty of options. For example, if kids are getting ready to learn about quadrilaterals, assign the video, "Identify quadrilaterals." As you introduce kids to a skill, have them watch the video in small groups. Afterward, come together as a class and discuss the lesson in more detail, encouraging kids to share what they learned. Since the videos are short, you could have kids watch again for an end-of-class review. Even without device access for every student, you can still use the resource for whole-class instruction, or even for lesson ideas and inspiration.

Full Disclosure: LearnZillion and Common Sense Education share funders; however, those relationships do not impact Common Sense Education's editorial independence and this learning rating.

While assigning videos without creating a roster within the site made LearnZillion easy to use, I may not have been able to take take full advantage of all of the site's features. With future ...
