Second Grade

Math

This quarter's focus will be on developing an understanding of place value. To do this, we will:

  • Represent 3 digit numbers in multiple ways, including word form, base ten block, and expanded form
  • Find patterns on hundreds and thousands charts to help us skip count
  • Understand that the location of a digit in a 3 digit number determines its value
  • Compare two numbers using <,>, and =
  • Mentally add and subtract 10 and 100 to a 3 digit number

Additionally, we will create and interpret bar graphs and picture graphs. We will also work on our fact fluency for sums within 20.
