Second graders have jumped in to counting and are working on building their understanding of place value and number sense! Students work both independently and in partnerships to count objects and represent their 2-digit numbers in many ways!
What it looks like:
Student count objects such as dry beans, dry macaroni, and cubes. After they count their number by 2s, 5s, and 10s, they can represent their number in different ways. Your child can represent numbers using a tens frame, drawing a quick picture, in word form, tally marks, and by place value.
What can I do at home?
At home, allow your child to count different objects such as forks, books, toys, or dry macaroni. They can practice making groups of 2, 5, and 10 to help them count bigger numbers faster.
