Card Game Friday – Toss It Up

We played Toss It Up on Friday. The students had a lot of fun tossing the cards in the air and seeing which ones landed face up. It’s an easy but fun game!     Happy playing!  

Card Game Friday – Flip 3

Hi Grade Two Families, This card game really needed us to think and try to find what equations we can form using the three cards we flipped over. Once we got the hang of the game, some of the students started to strategize to think about what cards they had seen flipped over and what […]

Card Game Friday – Pyramid

We played Pyramid on Friday. The trickiest part might’ve been recognizing which cards are free and which ones aren’t. Happy playing!

Hi Grade Two Families, To practice our addition, we played another variation of war: Addition War! They are slowly improving on their mental addition and card games are a fun way to practice! Happy playing!

Hi Grade Two Families, We played Crazy Eights! The class needed some gentle reminders to only play a card on their own turn. Many were developing their strategies to try to win the game. Happy playing!  

Card Game Friday – Closest To

Hi Grade Two Families, We played Closest To on Friday. We used our Math brains a lot while playing to figure out which numbers are close to each other and which ones are further away. The partners got to work together to talk about why they thought their number was closer or further away. Happy […]

Card Game Friday – 2-Digit War

We played 2-Digit War on Friday. It’s a lot like War but instead of one card, we used two! We read the the two cards as two-digit numbers and looked for the biggest number. For an extra challenge, you can add the 10s in and form some 3-digit numbers. Happy playing!   

Card Game Friday – Even or Odd?

Hi Grade 2 Families! We reviewed what even and odd numbers are and then played “Even or Odd?” It required a bit of memory and recognizing which numbers are even and odd. They did a great job playing with one another and supporting their friends. Happy playing!

Card Game Friday – Sevens

We played Sevens on Friday to help build our number sense. The Grade 2 students persevered and kept playing even if many of the decks turned out to be incomplete. Here’s to hoping you have complete decks at home 🙂

Card Game Friday – Card Tower

We built Card Towers on Friday! We looked at different pictures of card towers and watched this video to get some inspiration and ideas. Before we started building, we remembered what Mojo said about making mistakes and the power of yet! Once we got building, some of us found it easy, but some of us found […]

Hi Grade Two Families, The class played Elevator last Friday! I was away so I unfortunately don’t have any photos – but I hear they enjoyed the game! I hope you do too! Happy playing!

Card Game Friday – Trash

We played Trash on Friday! It’s a quick, fun game that practices our number sense. Happy playing!

Card Game Friday – Old Maid

This week’s card game was Old Maid! However, I learned different students knew how to play the game but called it something else, like Turtle! It was excellent practice for their fine motor skills as they tried to hold up many of the cards while they picked out the pairs, but they were able to […]

Card Game Friday – Snap

Hi Grade Two Families, After a brief hiatus we were able to play Card Game Friday again this week! We played Snap. It is a similar to War but looks for pairs instead  of the order of numbers. Happy playing!
