The Magic of Math: Place Value

Hope King and I are so excited to bring you a brand new math curriculum/supplemental resources for second grade. The Magic of Math is just what it sounds like – strategies and lessons that will engage your students all while teaching them all of the necessary skills needed to master the second grade concepts and standards. For teachers…that’s magic! πŸ˜‰ This program is completely aligned with all Common Core and TEKS standards and will work with (or in place of) any math curriculum. All of the materials are easy to print and prep to hopefully save you some important planning time! πŸ™‚ Check out all of the resources and materials included in this first month’s collection

Month One: Number Sense and Place Value
Here is a quick look at all of the focus standards and concepts within the unit:
Each unit contains daily lesson plans. Each day is broken down into a daily word problem for math warm-up or journals followed by resources for a minilesson, student activities, and practice/reinforcement activities.
Here is a sneak peek at a few of our favorite minilessons and student activities:
We have included everything you need to build interactive notebooks that will allow your students to strengthen their content knowledge. This is also a great reference for the future if they are struggling later on remembering a specific skill. Many of the resources are differentiated to meet the needs of your learners.
When we said EVERYTHING is included…we truly mean anything and EVERYTHING that we use as teachers. We have also included vocabulary cards to display throughout the unit and/or to add to a math word wall. “I Can” statements are also included to display to show the standards and content that you will be covering with each lesson.
And finally…no math unit would be complete without formal assessments. These will allow you to track your students progress and mastery of each set of skills.
So go ahead and check math off your list for the first month of school! Our next unit will be out soon. You can check out our sequence of future skills as well as some book suggestions right HERE!

  1. I love it, but your sequence is very different than what my school uses. How quickly do you anticipate each new unit being ready?

  2. I used your resources when I had a year 1 and year 2 composite.
    This year I have a straight Year 1 and there doesn't seem to be anything comparable to what these units are.
    Yes there are maths unit products out there …but not like this

  3. I am so obsessed with this I can't even tell you! I have all your rooted in reading and writing units so far! I've bought tons of your math as well. To have it in units like this – AMAZING! Question…..I know you have probably been asked 100 times – but do you have a map of what units will be presented when? I will TOTALLY want to follow this – but our admin wants us to submit a map of what we will be covering when. He doesn't care the order – just that we have a plan. So I was wondering if there was something I could print that would show when – or even if you know in your head a month and date for the skill I could type it up myself if you even cared to email me. I know these units have got to be TONS of work for you – but they have helped me and my students SO much more than you can even imagine!

  4. Simply amazing! Do you think you will be adding binder covers and spine labels like you do for Rooted in Reading?
