# Grade 2 Math at Home

Welcome! We’ll update this page every weekday with a new math activity. Many of the activities will be fun and worthwhile for students of all ages so that you can do them as a family. The following day, we’ll share examples of how other people did the activity so you can check your work and stretch your thinking.

• fluency with addition and subtraction facts to 20

• counting within 1,000 by 1, 10, and 100, and writing and reading numbers up to 1,000

• adding and subtracting 2- and 3-digit numbers in many ways

We’ll do a lot of work with measurement and geometry, too!

## Math & Game Tools

DIY spinners, origami dice, and more!

## Math in Our World: Target Game

We invented a new target game. Each player gets five pennies to toss. You can earn 1, 3, or 5 points, depending on where your penny lands. I’ve tossed two pennies so far.

1. Show what is happening using pictures, models, or numbers.

1. What do you notice? What do you wonder?

### How could you get started?

1. Try using tally marks to show what is happening.

2. When the game is over, how many points will be scored?

3. How many pennies will earn 1 point? 3 points? 5 points?

### Challenge

1. Show your work to someone else, and explain your thinking. Did they understand?

### Follow-Up

Make your own target game. You can use string or yarn to make the circles and a cup or small container for the middle. It works well to toss coins, paperclips, or even a small paper ball. Choose how many points each target is worth, and you are ready to play! Write your own target game problems and share them with us!
