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.
Do your students ever want to just hurry and finish their homework? Your students can use the number line jumping strategy to quickly add two-digit numbers and show their understanding of place value and expanded form in the process.
