Second Grade

At Central Elementary we use the math program Everyday Math. This is a spiraling program- that means that all of the concepts are taught and re-taught so if your child doesn't quite get it the first time, that's ok... we're going to hit it again! To help your child focus on our math, we'll be using a Math Focus Wall with vocabulary words and posters with math information they can refer to!  Please see our Math Workshop page for more information on how I teach math in our classroom!

Below you will find the units and content for the program as well as a few of the extra projects that we do in each unit for fun and extra practice!

Unit 1

Numbers and Routines

We will review of concepts from first grade and establish routines for second grade math.

Unit 2
