How to teach math to second grade

Nov 26, 2013 5:36pm

I am a brand new teacher who just started. I teach 2nd grade. I want to know the basics that every math lesson should have. When I teach I feel like I am very unclear. I would be grateful to anyone who can help me. I would also love links to videos that I can watch to help me. Thank you!

      I find that being really clear with 2nd grade end-of-year expectations helps. This helps students distinguish between what is bottom-line expected, and what is being taught to further their understanding at a later point. Students can gauge to what point they have to master a concept.

        Thank you! Those videos were clear and very helpful. I'm looking for more though. Is there anything that runs through the basics of every math lesson and how to engage the students.

          Feel free to follow my group, FUSD 2nd Grade Math. I'm a district math coach and have put resources in this group to help the teachers in my district understand and address the standards more effectively.

          I hope this helps!
