Giggle Facts
The Giggle Facts
Math Program helps
2nd Grade students master their Addition and Subtraction Facts,
and helps kids have an easier time learning many of the other Grade
2 math concepts described on this page that they will encounter in Second Grade and later on
in Third Grade.

You
will notice that many math concepts and math skills repeat over the Kindergarten, 1st
Grade, Second Grade and 3rd Grade levels. This is due to the fact that math
concepts build on each other grade by grade.




Math Facts: Addition and Subtraction


Adding and Subtracting Larger
Numbers



Giggle Facts
is Great for Second Graders!


Addition and Subtraction Math
Facts should be mastered by the end of the 2^{nd} Grade. Students
will review Math Fact Addition strategies such as “Doubles” (6+6 or 4+4), “Turnarounds”
(2+7 = 7+2), “Near Doubles”, “Almost Doubles” or “Doubles
Plus 1” (6+6+12, so 6+7= one more, or 13). Kids will also learn
other math strategies for both Addition and Subtraction that will enable
them to really master their Math Facts.


Children in Second Grade
will learn to add and subtract larger numbers (ex: 2digit
numbers such as 46+19, or 7258). More than one math strategy may be
taught to solve these problems, including Mental Math.



Second Grade children need to spend time at home practicing Math Facts.
Giggle Facts reinforces
the math strategies taught in the classroom, and incorporates many others as well.
For some children, the
transition to adding and subtracting larger numbers can be difficult.
Giggle Facts helps second
grade students by giving them lots of fun practice with Math Facts, which eases the transition to working with larger numbers.


Math Facts  Multiplication and
Division


Skip Counting and Using a Hundreds Board



Instant
Recall of Math Facts is IMPERATIVE to Learning HigherLevel
Math Concepts. Read What Researchers Have to Say...


Students in Second Grade will begin exploring
Multiplication and Division in concrete ways. Kids will learn important
vocabulary such as Products (answer to a multiplication question), Quotients (answer to a division question), Remainders,
Fact Families, etc. Students will also be placing objects into equal
groups, displaying numbers in arrays, and creating number stories.


Students in 2nd Grade will review skip counting by
2s, 5s, and 10s (ex: 2,4, 6, 8, or 5, 10, 15, 20). Frequently, a Hundreds Board is used to visually represent these math concepts, and to assist students
in learning them.



The math knowledge and number sense that students
gain through the Giggle Facts
math program will help them understand Multiplication and Division Fact Families.
Giggle Facts
teaches children the relationship between numbers (Number Sense), which in turn
helps with math concepts such as skip counting, greater than / less than, before / after,
odd and even numbers, etc.









Children
in Second Grade will count / add pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar bills. Students
will continue to work on the math concept of making change.


Students in Grade 2 will learn
that each digit in larger numbers has a value, depending on its position in the number.
For example, in the number 52,478, the 5 is worth 5 “tenthousands” (or 50,000), the 2
is worth 2 “thousands” (or 2,000), the 4 is worth 4 “hundreds” (or 400), the 7 is worth 7 “tens”
(or 70), and the 8 is worth 8 “ones”, or simply 8.



Children
who have mastered their Addition and Subtraction Math Facts will have an easier time
adding and counting money, and learning how to make change. Giggle
Facts allows children
to develop their number sense, which makes skip counting with money easier.
Giggle
Facts
teaches students to break down larger numbers into their smaller components (tens and ones) through
two different math strategies. There is an Addition strategy named
“Teens”, and a Subtraction strategy named “More Teens”
in the Giggle Facts math program that supports the math concept of Place
Value.

SecondGraders will have many opportunities to measure in
a variety of ways. Grade Two students may continue measuring with nonstandard units (ex:
hand spans) and standard units (ex: inches, feet, yards, or centimeters, decimeters and meters), as well as temperature in
Fahrenheit and Celsius using a thermometer, etc.


Telling Time remains an important math skill
that students will continue working on in Second Grade. They will tell
time to the hour, halfhour, quarterhour, 5 minutes and 1 minute using both digital and analog clocks. The math concept of elapsed
time will also be reviewed.



The keen number sense that second grade
students will develop through the Giggle Facts math program will aid them in understanding the tricky math concept
of telling time.









Grade 2 students will learn to classify 2dimensional
shapes by shape, color and size. They will also look at various attributes of shapes (ex: number of sides,
corners, etc.). Solids (3D) such as cones, cylinders, prisms, pyramids and spheres will also be reviewed.


Second Grade students
will learn about Lines, Line Segments, and Parallel Lines, and they will be introduced to Angles as well.

Fractional parts
of a whole will be investigated (ex: the child will see a circle, and will divide it into several equal parts like halves,
thirds, fourths, sixths, etc.) in second grade. Fractions of a group will also be explored
(ex: how to divide a class of 24 children into 6 equal groups). 2nd Grade kids will
shade in parts of an object to show a specified fraction, and they will explore equivalent fractions using concrete materials
such as pattern blocks.


An image that is symmetrical is something that has two sides that are identical. One side
could be seen as a “mirror image” of the other side. 2nd Grade students
will have opportunities to look for symmetry in everyday objects, as well as create symmetrical patterns of their own.
They will determine whether certain objects or pictures display line symmetry, and the number of lines
of symmetry in those objects or pictures.

Data Management and Analysis







Children in Second Grade will continue to create
various graphs (ex: bar graphs). They will also learn more about data collection, and how to organize
and analyze the data. Math concepts such as Median, Mode, and Range will
be learned.


Students
in Grade 2 will use estimating and rounding as useful math strategies to get an
approximate answer, and they will also estimate to verify that their answer (to an Addition or Subtraction
question) makes sense.










Do you know someone interested in helping
us distribute this fantastic math program?


Students in 2nd Grade will begin learning
about different types of measuring, such as measuring the contents of a container (Capacity) and the Weight of small objects. Kids
will work with both the U.S. Customary Measuring System, and the Metric System. Children
will learn terms such as Cups, Pints, Quarts, Gallons, Liters, Ounces, Pounds, Grams and Kilograms.
Some equivalent measures will also be explored (ex: 2 Pints = 1 Quart).


Second Graders will explore the concept of Perimeter and Area
in concrete ways. For example, students may measure the distance around their textbook,
or use pattern blocks to “tile” a surface such as their desk.
