PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have your students get back in the swing of things with this set of engaging Back to School math activities.

Based on Singapore Math Principles and designed for Common Core Math instruction these activities focus on the development of problem solving strategies and logical/inferential thinking for students in grade 2 and include:
*Center 1 - Completing Bar Models - 9 full-color student activity
cards with student recording sheet and answer key.*
*Center 2 - Sorting/Classifying Bar Models - 16 bar model
diagrams to sort by operation (addition/subtraction).*

These math activities were developed to be used at the beginning of the school year and focus on computation levels that are aligned to the start of many second grade math curricula. The activities in this set can also be used as informal assessments to help guide instruction and identify students' strengths or areas to continue to develop. These activities can be used for enrichment or remediation depending on the needs of your students.

This packet aims to strengthen students' comprehension of mathematical operations by using purposeful vocabulary intended to direct student thinking and engender discussion as opposed to the "cookie cutter" type problems that rely on overused clue words to drive mathematical thinking. Authentic assessments are moving away from the type of questions where students can simply identify words they have been taught to be associated with certain operations. This packet will help your students think through the problems and see the reasoning behind the math by visualizing patterns within the models.
