Grade 2 learners will demonstrate an understanding of place value, that numbers can be classified according to their characteristics, and of how to compare and estimate quantities. They will deepen their understanding of the meaning of addition and subtraction, and they will recall some facts by learning and applying mental math strategies while they demonstrate and explain the meaning of equality and inequality. Learners will predict an element in a repeating pattern and demonstrate an understanding of increasing patterns. They will construct objects and shapes, sort them according to their attributes, and compare and measure them using non-standard units while understanding that the orientation of an object does not alter its measurement. Learners will gather data to answer questions, and they will construct and interpret graphs.
The Guiding Principles for the Design of Learning Experiences and Assessment Practices provide guidance to all Manitoba educators as they design learning experiences and classroom assessments to strengthen, extend, and expand student learning. Planning with the learner, the context, and the curricula in mind creates opportunities for the co-construction of inclusive learning experiences and assessment practices where the diverse learning needs, abilities, and interests of each learner are met.
Assessment for and as learning involve learners in the process and support learner reflection; assessment of learning (commonly known as summative evaluation) measures final outcomes. All aspects, when done well, contribute to informed teaching and reliable judgment of learner progress.
The Guiding Principles for Evaluation and Reporting are currently still under development and not yet available. When completed, a notification will be added to the Manitoba Framework for Learning “What’s New?” page on the website.
