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 🙂

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!
