Grade 2 has been spending some extra time this past week focusing on different ways to do Addition. Students not only need to understand HOW to use a Maths algorithm to find an answer but also explain WHY they are doing so. Students have been introduced to a number of different addition strategies. The following is a brief explanation of those strategies taken from the Evan-Moor series, Building Math Fluency.
IST uses the Everyday Math series for daily Maths instruction. For more information and resources using Everyday Math – click on the Free Family Resources.
For additional Maths resources, strategies and extra help at home for Grade 2 students, try IXL Maths or other resources listed on the IST Grade 2 Website. If you have a site that you would like added to our list, please do not hesitate to add the site as a comment on this posting.
