Subject: Re: Making learning addition and subtraction fun
Student motivation is a problem at all grade levels, but I suspect the solutions are limited for a second grader. Research indicates that we have a higher motivation for learning if the need comes before the training. That is, give the students a real need for learning something, and they will be more motivated to learn. For a second grader I suspect giving examples of counting milk or lunch money would be a motivation. Counting the number of girls and number of boys and arriving at a total would be a motivating model. Good luck! Bill
