My Community Counts:

A Second Grade Technology Project

In this project students will participate in a shared reading activity of The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton and then apply the reading to a math problem solving activity. The book, The Little House is about a house that “moves” from the countryside to the big city. It experiences many changes over the years. The class will read the book, each student pick a community and then create a word problem about that community.

The students' word problems are published here for all to share.
