In our third unit, students will be learning how to add and subtract numbers with regrouping. There are two methods that we use to solve these types of problems.
Students learn about two different methods to solve these types of problems. One is called the Vertical Method and the other one is called the Decomposing Method. There is an example down below.
Students will continue to work on their memorization of basic addition and subtraction facts.
Here is a video on subtraction with regrouping that the students enjoyed watching in class:
Currently, we are working on our goods and services unit. Students will learn about:
This is a fun project that wraps up social studies, math, art, writing, and technology all into one. Students will price out their goods to see how much they could possibly make during the market. They will work in small groups to write commercials for their product and then star in them. We will edit these on iMovie.
Both second grade classes are combined for reading so that we can better serve the needs of each student. The students are broken up into smaller groups so that they can have differentiated reading and spelling. When they are not being pulled for small group instruction, each student has a set of 10 centers to work on throughout each week. It is great to have volunteers to help out during this time.
