Studies show that math learners benefit substantially from being able to EXPLAIN their thinking. As beginning learners and writers, second graders can have a bit of a hard time with the increased need to explain their thinking in math programs! Use this resource to help your young learners learn how to write written responses.

This resource includes 8 extended response pages geared around working with coins and dollars. Of these 8 extended responses:

• 2 ask students to add the value of multiple bills of multiple values (can be approached as multi-step problem or as addition of multiple numbers)
• 2 ask students to find the value of a missing coin after learning the total and value of other coins.
• 2 ask students to show how to make a certain value of cents and explain how they came to that conclusion.
• 2 ask students to agree or disagree while working through a two step problem and then explain their thinking.

*** These can be TOUGH!!! *** Consider pairing students up to strategize together. Then, call up different groups to share their ways of thinking and solving. You can also consider using this as an enrichment resource, or as a small group resource.
