Let’s start building numbers! Just as building skyscrapers is a visual representation of mathematics, students will use the visual representation of base-ten blocks to add—or build—onto a two-digit number.
Do your students ever want to just hurry and finish their homework? Your students can use the number line jumping strategy to quickly add two-digit numbers and show their understanding of place value and expanded form in the process.
Students will get plenty of practice composing tens with ten frames to add to 20! Use this scaffolded EL Lesson alone or for more addition practice before teaching the **Scavenger Hunt Addition** lesson.
Make It Work! Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Adding fractions with unlike denominators just doesn't work like it does when the denominators are the same. Let's make it work! Students will add fractions with unlike denominators with sums between one and two.
Fractions are everywhere! In this hands-on lesson, your class will work together in groups to find real-world examples of fractions. As they discover more complicated fractions, students will create their own word problems with them.
Build a solid foundation in number sense with this lesson all about the friendly number 10! Students will count with both fingers and base-ten blocks. This lesson can be used alone or with the lesson plan **Place Value Concentration.**
This lesson helps students develop an ability to compare and contrast as they explore two strategies to solve three-digit addition problems. This EL Math lesson can be used alone or alongside Three-Digit Addition Strategies Review.
