2nd Grade Numbers of the Week Use for morning work or as homework.
Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction
2.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one and two step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g. by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Add and subtract within 20
2.OA.2 Fluently add and
subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from
memory all sums of two onedigit numbers.
Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication
2.OA.3 Determine whether a group of objects (up to 20) has an odd or even number of members, e.g. by pairing objects or counting them by 2s; write an equation to express an even number as a sum of two equal addends.
Possible Activities:
Even Odd Scoop
Even Odd Song
Odd and Even ReadAlouds
2.OA.4 Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Possible Activities:
Making Arrays
Building Arrays
Making Different Sized Squares
2nd GRADE NUMBER ACTIVITIES: NUMBER AND OPERATIONS IN BASE TEN
Understand place value
2.NBT.1 Understand that the three
digits of a threedigit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and
ones. Understand the following as special cases:
a. 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens – called a “hundred.”
b.
The numbers 100, 200,300,400,500,600,700,800,900 refer to one, two,
three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine hundreds (and 0 tens and 0
ones).
Possible Activities: 
2.NBT.2 Count within 1000; skip count by 2s, 5s, 10s, and 100s. 

2.NBT.3 Read and write numbers to 1000 using baseten notation, number names, and expanded form.
Possible Activities:
Make Six Numbers
Number Word Concentration
Representing Numbers in 4 Ways
Roll 3 Digits
Number Writing Barrier Game
2.NBT.4 Compare two threedigit numbers based on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols.
Possible Activities:
Comparing 3 Digit Numbers
Place Value Challenge (3 Digits)
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract
2.NBT.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
2.NBT.6 Add up to four twodigit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Possible Activities:
Make 100
Twodigit Addition Word Problems
2.NBT.7 Add
and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and
strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the
relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a
written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting threedigit
numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens,
ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose
tens or hundreds.
2.NBT.8 Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100900 and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100900.
Possible Activities: 
Race Around + 10 (ver. 2) 
2.NBT.9 Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.
Possible Activities:
Finding Sums
