Second Grade Math Switch!
Now that we have finished up our first unit of math, we are ready to start some new learning! To prepare for our new unit of study, each second grader completed a pre-test for Unit 2 last week. Our Unit 2 will cover double digit addition strategies, place value, adding up to four 2 digit numbers, and continue on with addition fluency. As a second grade staff, we are always striving to meet the needs of each and every individual student. In order to do this, we studied the data from our students’ pre-tests, and used this information to group together students with similar areas of expertise and areas of need.
Today, many of our students will be taking part in a “math switch” in which they may be traveling to a different classroom, so that they are able to work in the group that will help them reach their full potential as a math learner for this unit. Each group of math learners will be working on the same math concepts each day, but the pace and practice may look a little different. We are very excited about this opportunity for your child and can’t wait to dig in! Please feel free to e-mail us if you have an questions or concerns.
