Maths Facts Secret Codes

Second Grade Math Activities: Math Facts Secret Codes

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Pen
  • Maths fact "decoder" key
  • Message

What You Do:

  1. Make up some addition problems for your child to solve. Make a decoding sheet to correspond with the answers, and write a letter for each answer to create a message!
  2. Write your message on the decoder key, by making a small line for each letter of the alphabet in the message. 
  3. Write out your message lines, and then let your child take a whack at the maths facts to decode your words. The sum of each pair of numbers appears under each line of the message, and matches up with a letter. For a child who is making good progress on maths facts, this is a fairly fast activity … but one that will bring a sense of accomplishment that lasts all day and beyond!
