We will finish up Topic 9 mid week. They did a pretty good job on their pre assessment! My small groups are focusing on what I see on both as an individual and as a whole group. Greater than and less than are tricky because of the vocabulary used but with lots of work and practice on the 100's chart they will have it!
Topic 10 focuses on "Adding with Tens and Ones". We will be adding double digit numbers to ones. The previous two topics helped set us up for this one quite well. They will learn to move around the 100's chart even more (moving down is adding, moving back is subtracting).
They will also work with adding 10's to two digit numbers. So this may be a bit difficult but they will use multiple strategies: using sticks/ones (manipulatives), using their 100's chart and I will also teach them how to solve using facts (vertical notation). So there's a lot going on here, and depending on the pre assessment, I may take a few days to each part.
If you are looking for some extra math practice at home (it wouldn't hurt) I found this article from parent magazine with their 10 top math apps. I haven't actually played any of them but if you have any questions before you purchase (if they aren't free), pleas ask!
Also on the link section of this weebly, you will find more links to math games! If you find a good one, let me know and I will post the link!!
