Instructional Game Plan

Shuford Elementary

MVP - Most Valuable Practices

2nd Grade has hit the blended road running hard!

Students are completing and turning in assignments through Canvas and parents are able to keep up with their child's work with their parent account.

They have students complete an assignment on Canvas each day during math and reading stations. In reading, students have watched videos about the different types of sentences, verbs, citizenship, and life cycles. In math students watch videos to reinforce what they learn in the whole group lesson for the day. They have watched videos about math mountains and fact families. They also enjoy listening to the songs we have posted like "Odd Todd and Even Steven" and raps about adding doubles. Students complete a short assignment after each video. For example, students had to type the four stages of the butterfly life cycle after watching a video online. Students have also participated in discussions where they can read each others opinions and like and comment on others posts. In our last discussion, students had to answer whether they think using math mountains are helpful or not and tell why.
