Math Test and math for this term
The students worked hard and did well demonstrating their understanding of the math taught up to this point. We will keep building on the ideas around greater than, less than, equal to but we will also be starting to work more on evens and odd numbers and focus on skip counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's forwards.
We are currently working on ordinal numbers. These are the numbers we use to put things in order. For example, we could be first, second, third fourth, etc. Please practice this with your child at home. You can make a line of items and then point to a certain one and ask them what position it is in!
The next unit that we are working on is patterning. We started by exploring what the students already know about patterns, first creating them using multiple colours and shapes. The students where then given the challenge of trying to create a pattern using only a single colour and a single shape piece. They were very creative with their responses and we got a lot of variety in their answers! Keep up the good work grade twos!!
