Second Grade Math Curriculum

All McRuffy Math Curriculums provide a solid education in the basics of math. Students develop in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts by hands-on methods. Students grasp the reasoning behind the problems.

The easy-to-use lesson plans give daily assignments. Worksheets give students the opportunity to practice and demonstrate skills. Mats, charts, and flashcards expand the opportunities to learn and support instruction. Manipulatives are an important part of this math curriculum, so be sure to use them!

2nd Grade Color Math Curriculum

The McRuffy 2nd Grade Color Math Curriculum follows the same design as K and 1st Color Math. The program uses what we call a "tight spiral" approach, covering many concepts with short activities and frequent review. The curriculum contains a detailed Teacher's Manual, colorful Workbook, Response Book, and Resource Pack containing card sets, games, posters, and more.

The program also uses popular math manipulatives (sold separately in some packages). An inexpensive kit has been packaged especially for the curriculum.

McRuffy's 2nd Grade Color Math places a special emphasis on auditory skills. Daily activities require students to listen to directions, review math skills, and record answers in the Response Book. A flippable clear plastic sheet allows students to record their answer with a dry-erase marker. The flip & check system of the Response Book allows students to check their own work.

McRuffy 2nd Grade Color Math Curriculum includes:

  • The Teacher's Manual with daily lesson
    plans, copy masters, and reference material,
  • A 156 page color Workbook,
  • The Resource Pack includes games written
    specifically for this program, and
  • The Response Book.

Concepts include:
  • Addition and subtraction (up to four-digits) with regrouping, adding up to four numbers,
  • Roman Numerals,
  • Multiplication facts,
  • Division facts to 4,
  • Reading thermometers,
  • Measuring,
  • Counting money,
  • Place money,
  • Place value to ten thousands,
  • Introduction to fractions,
  • Geometric reasoning,
  • Telling time to the nearest five minutes, and
  • Odd and even numbers.

The daily auditory exercise help build listening skills.
