Second Grade Number Sense

Category: Classroom activity / materials
Grade Range: K-5

One of the things I love most about teaching the Common Core is that it gives me time to make sure my students have a really strong foundation of number sense. Here my students are beginning to understand multiplication by seeing it as repeated addition and as a collection of equal groups. After exploring these concepts with manipulatives, they were able to represent the same number sentence in different ways. This will help them be successful when they start to really dig into multiplication and division at higher levels.
