This math workshop kit is an amazing way to meet all your students' needs, it will engage your students with the activities, and it will help you learn a lot about your students' abilities. I created this product so that you can implement math workshop in your 2nd grade classroom with ease. This packet contains 6 lesson plans that focus on subtraction strategies, 12 math fact games, 6 worksheets, 6 activating strategy ideas/materials, 6 essential question posters, key vocabulary cards, 6 mini lesson ideas, and 6 lesson plans/materials for small group instruction. Everything is aligned with the CCSS, the lessons are color coded to help you organize your materials, the activities are consistent so that students can focus on content instead of relearning a new game each day, and the games are fun and engaging.
The lesson plans were developed using the Learning Focused Schools Format, which is a research proven style of teaching that encourages high levels of engagement and learning. Most of the materials in this packet are print and go, however if you prefer to go an extra step and laminate for long-term use then it'll take a little bit longer to prepare. You'll simply need to provide math manipulatives such as dice, counters, and snap cubes for the activities. Students can return to these activities over and over throughout the year for continued practice.
This packet is intended for 2nd grade math workshop, centers or stations, but many of the skills overlap 1st grade CCSS. In these games, lessons, and activities students will be working on:
Count Back to Subtract
Subtract Zero and Subtract All
Subtracting 1 and 2
Think Addition to Subtract Doubles
Relate Addition to Subtraction
