Our second graders are beginning to solve word problems and 2 digit addition equations with regrouping! Today we were introduced to this mighty math process. When we add two numbers, we are discovering the “mystery” of making a new ten or a new hundred. Below please find the strategies that we will be using in the classroom to solve 2 digit addition problems. This week we will be practicing these strategies in the classroom. Next week your child will have an opportunity to practice in their homework.
Building addition and subtraction fact fluency is a huge part of our goal as mathematicians in second grade.. We practice in the classroom each day through various games, activities and songs. We will be sending home flashcards to review at home in the upcoming weeks. There are also many GREAT apps that provide additional support to our little mathematicians, the best part is that they have fun doing it. Here are a few to check out and possibly download to your personal devices:
