How to address violence in the news with your students.
Matific's 2nd Grade math games are arranged in four categories: Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Number and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, and Geometry. The first two are the most comprehensive, with the most games and practice sheets. Games involve basic math skills, but most require some problem-solving as well -- some problems are designed to have multiple solutions. Go for these more inquiry-based games, rather than those with a simple right-or-wrong answer, and explore possible strategies and solutions as a class.
It's probably helpful if kids have a basic understanding of the concepts, as the site doesn't offer explicit instruction. However, you might also try having students explore a topic on the site before you teach. The practice sheets can work as straightforward assessments or extra practice. But you're best off using the games to get kids thinking more flexibly. As students work through the program, use their profiles to gauge progress.Continue reading Show less
Key Standards Supported
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.5 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Measurement And Data
Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2, ..., and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number line diagram.
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
Number And Operations In Base Ten
Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
