Welcome to Second Grade! I have been employed at CMCSS since 1997. This year I am super excited to be one of the multiple classroom leaders for second grade. I earned my bachelor's degree at Murray State University and my master's degree at Trevecca Nazarene University. My hobbies include reading, traveling, and watching sports (UK Basketball, Titan's Football, & NASCAR Races). Reading aloud with your child 20 minutes each day will help your child experience academic success! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns!

Math - Place Value War Game

Level:  Grades 2-6

Skills:

Identification of two-digit numbers

Comparing numbers

Place Value

Players: 2

Materials:

Playing cards Ace (=1) through 9

Paper & Pencil for each player

Getting Started:

Players divide the playing cards evenly between themselves. Each player turns over two cards to create a two-digit number. The number on the first card turned over represents the number that will appear in the tens place; the number on the second card represents the number that will appear in the ones place.

Both players call out their numbers. (You might have them verbalize: “Six tens and two ones equals sixty-two.”) The player with the largest number gets all four cards.

In the event of a tie (if each player has the same 2-digit number), war is declared.

  • First, each player places three cards face down.
  • Then each player turns over two more cards and adds the second two-digit number created by those cards to the original 2-digit number from the tie.
  • The player with the largest sum gets all of the cards.

Play continues until one player has collected all of the cards in the deck.

Variation:

  • Players turn over three cards & build numbers into the hundreds.
