I'm curious what everyone in 2nd or 3rd grade is teaching in math right now. I finally got a handle on my reading, writing, and spelling programs and know what I'm going to be doing in the near-term; but math is another story. What are you doing?

We finished up Money (although we will definitely have to revisit it) and are beginning Time (time to the minute, elapsed time). We will then go into Multiplication by 0, 1, 3, 5 and Division of the same.

We just finished up 3 weeks of geometry... parallelograms, rhombi, perimeter, area, etc.... Next two weeks we're working on adding and subtracting up to 4 digit numbers. We don't officially start multiplication until january, which I think is ridiculously stupid so I start it earlier. (3rd grade, btw)

We have worked on patterns, skip counting, number lines, addition and subtraction without regrouping, place value, temperature, and will be doing comparing two digit numbers next week.

We're comparing two digit numbers this week. We have a district mandated pacing guide that everyone is required to follow.

My 2nd graders are working on addition strategies (+9, +1, +0, doubles) and subtraction tricks too. We use Everyday Math, so it's just where we are in the program (about halfway through the 2nd unit).

Are your first graders proficient in their addition and subtraction math facts? How long did it take you to explain place value? My second graders are still having trouble with place value and without a strong basis of place value I would not feel comfortable teaching trading in addition and subtraction. We are currently doing place value, doubles, doubles plus one, using logic, estimation.

We have been focusing on addition facts through 20 and strategies to remember them by (doubles, near doubles, +9 in relation to +10 facts etc). Next week we will begin working on our subtraction facts.

we are subtracting with 3 digit numbers AND regrouping. we just started with zeros! YIKES! difficult concept.

My second graders are doing place value, repeated addition and patterns. My third graders are doing addition & subtraction number stories, adding with mental math and making change.

I'm observing in a 3rd grade classroom and they just began multiplication last week. The program that they use, Investigations, calls for it to happen about mid-year but because of when they exam is they go into the exam without knowing it. So my teacher decided to switch it around this year and is doing it earlier.
