Counting and adding in 2nd Grade

This week the second graders in Mrs. Owensby's class have been learning how to count and add money and tell time. They worked with partners on an activity called, "Don't Break the Bank!" The students had to spin a spinner and identify whose dollar amount was larger. At the end they had to add up all of their earnings and see who had the most. They had a lot of fun and there was friendly competition to add up their totals to see who had the most! Before learning how to tell time, the students made their own clocks. The clocks were used as a resource to help them identify the hour and minute hand and to help them tell time to five minutes. They also used the smartboard to practice telling time before and after the hour.
