### Educational artifact 1 carpenter

1. 1. ENVISION MATH 2010 – 2011 2ND GRADE
2. 2. WHAT WILL YOUR SECOND GRADER BE LEARNING IN MATH THIS YEAR?  Number patterns/odd and even  Addition and subtraction  Money – up to \$100  Place value through 1000s  Addition and subtraction using multi-digit numbers  Time – time to the nearest hour and half hour  Geometry  Fractions  Measurement – length, weight, mass and capacity and volume of objects
3. 3. Your child will bring home a 4 page booklet after each lesson. This will let you know what your child is learning and show you if they are having any problems.
4. 4. If you have access to a computer at home, you and your child can access the whole student book from your computer. This is especially helpful if there is any confusion with a homework assignment or how something is supposed to be done. You can look it up and see the lesson and examples available for each lesson. There are many learning songs, activities and games that go along with each lesson that your child will be excited to do. You will be given a sheet of paper with Pearson’s website address and your child’s user name and password.
5. 5. Each topic we cover has a home-school connection paper. Look for your child to bring this home. This will keep you up to date with what your child is learning. There are also book suggestions and activities to enjoy at home.
6. 6. INTERACTIVE MATH STORY BOOKLET Each topic will also have an interactive math story associated with it. The teacher will read the story with the students first, then the students will be given a paper copy of the story to read through, fill out, and color on their own.
7. 7. LAYOUT OF THE BOOK  Pearson has made the layout of the new book very easy to follow.  There is a page for students to model their work using the “hands on” approach. Let’s spend a few minutes and do this lesson together.
8. 8. VISUAL LEARNING After the students have modeled a problem, they will be given an example of another problem in step by step form. Notice how the problem starts at the left side of the left hand page and continues across both pages to the right side of the right hand page. This is easier to follow and is visually appealing.
9. 9. After modeling and examples it is time for guided practice. This is when the teacher helps the students and works through the problems with them.
10. 10. Now it is time for independent practice. At this time the students will be working on the problems by themselves. It is at this time the teacher will be checking to see who needs further assistance with this topic.
11. 11. The last page is the problem solving page. This gives practice on applying math facts to real world situations. In real life your child will not be asked, “What is 3 + 7?” But they may be asked, “If you have 3 toy cars and she has 7, how many do you have all together?” This is the end goal in math, not to be able to recite math facts but to be able to understand them and apply them to real world situations. This is how the page would look if you accessed it on the website. There are different square icons on the left of the page that will take you to different activities associated with this lesson. There are interactive practice lessons, songs and a glossary for this lesson.
12. 12. Now it’s time for a Quick Check Assessment. The students will answer three questions. Two multiple choice and one short answer. This is a quick way of letting the teacher know how much the student understands. Based on the number of correct answers, the teacher can now place the student in the appropriate group for “center time”.
13. 13. Center time is a time when the students can play games with other students or do activities on the computer to help reinforce the skills they just learned. There are different levels of activities based on the student’s level of understanding.
14. 14. The enVision program gives us many homework options so the teacher can tailor the homework sent home with your child’s readiness level. There will be no more “too easy” or “too hard”. The practice pages sent home will be at your child’s level. *notice the eTools activities that coordinate with each lesson
15. 15. HOW CAN I HELP AT HOME? The following slides offer ideas for helping your child develop the math skills needed in the real world.
16. 16. NUMBER SENSE – ADDITION, SUBTRACTION, MULTIPLICATION, DIVISION, DECIMALS, FRACTIONS, MONEY, ETC.  While driving, ask your child how many blocks to your destination.  Discuss the difference in price of grades of gasoline  Bake cookies, make sandwiches, etc. and discuss how many equal parts you can make  Compare everyday items using the terms greater than, less than, and equal to
17. 17. MEASUREMENT – LENGTH, CAPACITY, WEIGHT, TEMPERATURE, DISTANCE  Measure different objects around the house using the terms millimeter, centimeter, inches, feet, etc.  Bake using tablespoons, cups, etc.  Estimate the weight of different objects around the house and check using a scale  Compare the weights of family members  Compare the different sizes of containers at the grocery store  Weigh produce at the grocery store
18. 18. GEOMETRY – LINES, POLYGONS, SYMMETRY, SIMILAR AND CONGRUENT FIGURES  Find solid objects and categorize them according to their shape (cube, sphere, cone, pyramid, etc.)  Draw a picture using as many shapes as possible  Find the perimeter, area, and volume of objects
19. 19. ALGEBRAIC THINKING – PATTERNS, EQUATIONS, ORDERED PAIRS  Find the missing number in a number sentence  Solve multistep problems
20. 20. DATA ANALYSIS & PROBABILITY – GRAPHING, PREDICTING OUTCOMES  Chart a week’s worth of weather and predict the next day’s forecast  Tally the colors of cars at a stop light and discuss the most common and least common colors, then predict the most likely and least likely color car to be at the next stop light.
