2nd Grade Writing Menu

I aligned this to the 2nd grade Common Core Standards. It works great as a reference on which lessons to teach in writing. I put an endless amount of hours researching to come up with this.

Just Dance Video Webmix by Kinderchat

All the videos have been converted to safeshare so they are safe to show in the class. I love to give my students brain breaks, especially when they have been working really hard. The dances on the videos are repetitive, so the kids can easily learn the dance moves.

2.OA.4 Arrays

We have been busy learning about arrays. We learned how to make arrays, repeated addition, and multiplication.
  • Students made arrays by using stickers. (Thank you Mrs. Bennett)
  • Students made arrays by using Cheez-its.
  • Game - Students worked in pairs. Partner A rolls the dice. The first dice is for rows and the second dice is for columns. Partner B makes the array with cubes.

The students loved this game. I added this game to our Daily 5 Math.
