Hi, my name is Marija, and today I'm gonna give you a grade 2 math assessment project. So in grade 2 most of the math that students are doing is adding and subtracting so a great project for them would be a shopping spree project and in a shopping spree project what you would do is give the students a budget. So lets say you told them your could spend 50 dollars. I would probably say no more no less so that they have to come to exactly 50. Then what you would do is give them a list of items and prices so we need a list of prices and items. So by giving them a list of prices and items you're making them add these numbers together right so they could how close they can get to 50 but now you also want to throw subtraction in there so what I would do in this project is throw in some coupons as well. So throw in just a few coupons that way when they buy a certain item they get to do minus 3 dollars or minus 2 dollars whatever the coupon might be. So this one instills the subtraction, the list of prices that they have to add up will instill the addition and you'll give them a limit of 50 that they can't go over or under that way they can't just buy 1 item and they also can't just go ahead and buy a 100 so what's important is to have a lot of items that cost 1 dollar that way they get down to the end if they're at 47, 48 they can just buy a few of those to get to their 50 dollars so that is an assessment project that you can do with your 2nd graders.
