This year, second graders will be introduced to the concept of multiplication using repeated addition. For example, they will learn that 5+5+5+5+5 is the same thing as saying 5x5. This guided lesson will use manipulatives to teach kids about repeated addition and give them plenty of opportunities to practice addition within 100. Download and print the accompanying worksheets for even more addition practice.
Use the worksheet, Holiday Shopping 2, to help your first and second graders practice adding or subtracting word problems. Learners will answer the problems and then discuss their answers with partners to show their understanding.
