#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

Today we will be practice how to subtract using what we know about place value and practice following the steps from 2nd grade. We will be focusing on how to know when to estimate and when to find an exact amount by looking for clue words, such as "about".

We will also be learning how to use addition to check our work as we are learning about the relationship between addition and subtraction.

They can also still work on rounding if they are on Prodigy.

### Due: Wednesday, September 1

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

We will continue learning how to estimate differences. We will be using the same sentence stem from last week to help with rounding:    ____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ____.

We will also be discussing the differences between estimating and finding an exact amount.

### Due: Tuesday, August 31

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

We will be taking a quick quiz to see where we are with rounding and estimating sums today.

We will then do a quick review of any skills where we had struggle, before we begin estimating differences. We will be using the same sentence stem from last week to help with rounding:    ____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ____.

We will also be discussing the differences between estimating and finding an exact amount.

### Due: Monday, August 30

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

Today we will be using what we have learned about place value to add numbers with and without regrouping.

Our goal is to become fluent and much faster with completing single digit addition, as we are solving larger problems. We will also be using our estimating skills to determine the reasonableness of our answers.

Attached you will find tips, practice, and a challenge.

IXL Practice: C.1, C.3,C.4

### Due: Friday, August 27

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

Today we will be using the "break apart strategy" to add. This is also known as expanded form.

We will be breaking numbers apart in their values and using what we learned about place value to add numbers... some with regrouping and some without. This is an excellent time to get out those place value disks from a couple weeks ago!

Attached you will find tips, practice, and a challenge!

IXL Practice: B.7, B.8, B.9

### Due: Thursday, August 26

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

Today we will be practicing addition strategies while using the associative property of addition that we learned about last week.

This properties allows us to group 3 or more addends in a different order and we will get the same sum. For example, 5+(2+4)= (5+2)+4

Attached you will find tips, practice, and a challenge!

IXL Practice: N.4 and N.5

### Due: Tuesday, August 24

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

We will be using what we know about rounding and adding to estimate sums.

Attached you will find some tips, practice, and a challenge you can do at home!

IXL Practice: P.6, P.7, P.8

### Due: Monday, August 23

#### Addition and Subtraction Within 1000

Today we will be putting to work all of our new strategies for rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. Our goal is to be able to do so correctly, but to also be able to EXPLAIN our reasoning to JUSTIFY our answers.

Some tips/tricks are attached below, as well as some extra practice if you want to work on it at home.

Also, remind students to use our sentence stem:

____ is between ____ and _____ but it is closer to _____.

### Due: Friday, August 20

#### Rounding

Today we will begin rounding two and three digit numbers to the nearest 100.  We will be using the following sentence stem:

_____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ___.

For example, 263 is between 200 and 300 but it is closer to 300.

This would be a quick and easy way to practice while in the car or eating dinner! See if they are able to mentally name the 10's a number is between and then determine what it is closest to!

### Due: Thursday, August 19

#### Rounding

Today we will begin rounding two and three digit numbers to the nearest 10.  We will be using the following sentence stem:

_____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ___.

For example, 13 is between 10 and 20 but it is closer to 10.

This would be a quick and easy way to practice while in the car or eating dinner! See if they are able to mentally name the 10's a number is between and then determine what it is closest to!

### Due: Tuesday, August 17

#### Place Value Understanding

Today we will be learning about the different properties of addition. We will be using these properties to help us as we are learning different addition strategies over the next several weeks.

Here is a link that will show you a little about the properties that we are learning about.

### Due: Monday, August 16

#### Place Value Understanding

Today we will be reviewing the difference between even and odd numbers. Our goal is also to practice explaining our thinking in multiple ways!

We will complete a cut and paste activity together, and then apply what we havwe learned about addition and even and odd numbers to complete a Superhero activity page!

### Due: Thursday, August 12

#### Place Value Understanding

Today we will complete an activity called "Facing Math" where we will use our knowlege of place value for a guided drawing activity!

After our review, we will be learning about different websites that we will be using this year, and practicing our log in skills!

### Due: Wednesday, August 11

#### Place Value Understanding

Today we will continue learning our math class routines and review important place value skills from previous years so that we are ready to start learning 3rd grade skills.
We will be using place value disks to manipulate, compose numbers, and decompose numbers. We will build on what we learned yesterday by working on how to model addition and subtraction using the place value disks.

Math words we will be using:
place value, compose, decompose, value, standard form, expanded form, regroup

This video models how we will use the place value disks for show addition:

This video models how we will use the place value disks to show subtraction:

Every student should be adding a place value mat and set of disks to their "Math Tools" folder if you want to practice composing numbers at home! A picture of these tools is attached. If you want to print more at home, the downloads are also attached!

A copy of the assessment is attached if you want to practice at home!

### Due: Tuesday, August 10

#### Place Value Understanding

Today we will be learning about our math class routines and review important place value skills from previous years so that we are ready to start learning 3rd grade skills.
We will be using place value disks to manipulate, compose numbers, and decompose numbers, so ask your child about them when they come home!

Here is a link that briefly previews place value disks and how we can use them in class (keep in mind ours may be different colors but the same values):

Some of the math words we will be using:
place value, compose, decompose, value, standard form, expanded form

A copy of the assessment and challenge are attached if you want to review at home!

### Due: Monday, August 9

#### Assessment

Today we will be completing benchmark testing for both reading and math to see where we are!

We will also be taking time to practice procedures and get to know each other better!
