Your second grader will conquer foundational arithmetic concepts such as addition with carrying and subtraction with borrowing. As in the other skills subjects, the A Beka arithmetic program builds the foundation necessary for more abstract concepts taught later. But that is not all. Skills involving numbers are an important part of life. That is why your child will practice counting money, telling time, and reading graphs. Themes such as transportation, the jungle, community helpers, and camping make the daily practice fun. The Grade 2 Arithmetic Child Kit contains the text, tests, and speed drills. Combine this kit with the Grade 2 Arithmetic Parent Kit to confidently teach and guide your second grader as he masters the concrete facts that build mathematical understanding and demonstrate God’s order and truth.
• Step-by-step instruction—Children learn when concepts are explained step by step in a way that makes sense to them. One of the hallmarks of A Beka arithmetic is the clear explanations and examples in the text and on the worksheets.
• Daily practice—Colorful daily worksheets provide planned practice in computation and application of familiar and new concepts. The daily arithmetic combination drills will keep your child on his toes!
• Spiral reinforcement of learning—There is no time to forget when your child receives regular, systematic review and practice as each new concept is built on the old. This reinforcing and building of concepts and skills in a spiral progression throughout the year—and from grade to grade in the A Beka curriculum!—puts learning into long-term memory. Your child will know it!
• Emphasis on problem solving—Your child will have daily opportunity to apply mathematical concepts to real-life situations. Many of his word problems reinforce Christian principles.
