    This bundle of math resources makes it easy for you to supplement & enrich your second grade math units with engaging activities that will challenge the unique learners in your classroom.

    Providing opportunities to extend learning is an essential component for helping your students truly master the math concepts introduced in second grade. 

    Each resource is research-based, student-centered, aligned to second grade math standards, tested in my second grade classroom, and then revised as needed to create a final product that gives your students a variety of opportunities to access engaging and challenging learning experiences. 

    These enrichment resources are designed to supplement your district-adopted curriculum. Your students can dig deeper into the concepts they have learned during the lessons and practice exercises provided by your curriculum through the spiral review, games, problem solving tasks, and projects included in this bundle. 



    Enrichment and rigor were top priority when these resources were created. During the first years of my teaching career, I always felt frustrated by the lack of resources for my advanced learners. They were able to quickly and accurately solve the problems provided by our district-adopted curriculum, and any “enrichment” resources I had on hand were simply extra sets of problems or busy work. My learners deserved more, and were certainly capable of more. Sound like some of your students? 

    This inspired me to begin designing resources that would meaningfully allow these advanced learners to deepen their understanding through highly-engaging learning opportunities. Here’s how rigor is woven into each resource included in this bundle:

    Number of the Day Binders: Modeling and reasoning routines that allow students to demonstrate their depth of understanding.

    Hands on Math Games: Suggestions for a challenge version of each game are included on each game card. 

    Problem Solving Tasks: Two increasingly-challenging levels of task cards are included: making meaning and challenge tasks. 

    Project Based Learning (PBL) Guide: The 5 project guides included in this bundle are specifically written to meet the needs of students who have demonstrated mastery of second grade math concepts, and are ready to apply them to a real-world project. 



    These materials are designed to promote student independence and self-directed learning. A consistent format is used for each math game card, each problem solving task and recording sheet, and each page of the project based learning guide. Once students understand the familiar and consistent layout used for each of these resources, they will be empowered to navigate each learning challenge with maximum independence.



    Gone are the days of flipping through your math resource books and files in search of enrichment activities that meet the unique needs of your learners. Instead, you can rely on Core Inspiration’s math enrichment resources to provide your students with a variety of learning activities that will challenge and engage them like never before. Simply download, print, and add them to your game center, problem solving board, or math workshop corner.

    In addition, this bundle is designed to give you as a teacher the decision-making power about which enrichment opportunities you will provide during each of your math units. There are more materials in this bundle than you could possibly use within one school year. You will likely find the materials you choose to use change from year to year based on the unique group of students you teach each year.

    Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Mathematically proficient students notice if calculations are repeated, and look both for general methods and for shortcuts. Upper elementary students might notice when dividing 25 by 11 that they are repeating the same calculations over and over again, and conclude they have a repeating decimal. By paying attention to the calculation of slope as they repeatedly check whether points are on the line through (1, 2) with slope 3, middle school students might abstract the equation (𝑦 – 2)/(𝑥 – 1) = 3. Noticing the regularity in the way terms cancel when expanding (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥 + 1), (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1), and (𝑥 – 1)(𝑥³ + 𝑥² + 𝑥 + 1) might lead them to the general formula for the sum of a geometric series. As they work to solve a problem, mathematically proficient students maintain oversight of the process, while attending to the details. They continually evaluate the reasonableness of their intermediate results.
    Look for and make use of structure. Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. Young students, for example, might notice that three and seven more is the same amount as seven and three more, or they may sort a collection of shapes according to how many sides the shapes have. Later, students will see 7 × 8 equals the well remembered 7 × 5 + 7 × 3, in preparation for learning about the distributive property. In the expression 𝑥² + 9𝑥 + 14, older students can see the 14 as 2 × 7 and the 9 as 2 + 7. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects. For example, they can see 5 – 3(𝑥 – 𝑦)² as 5 minus a positive number times a square and use that to realize that its value cannot be more than 5 for any real numbers 𝑥 and 𝑦.
    Attend to precision. Mathematically proficient students try to communicate precisely to others. They try to use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning. They state the meaning of the symbols they choose, including using the equal sign consistently and appropriately. They are careful about specifying units of measure, and labeling axes to clarify the correspondence with quantities in a problem. They calculate accurately and efficiently, express numerical answers with a degree of precision appropriate for the problem context. In the elementary grades, students give carefully formulated explanations to each other. By the time they reach high school they have learned to examine claims and make explicit use of definitions.
    Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
    Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
