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.
Counting collections are a great way to help students practice counting while gaining practice recording and justifying their thinking. Students will work specifically with the numbers 1-30 to develop fluency counting and writing numbers.
Who doesn’t like to spend money and plan parties? Students will subtract two-digit numbers as they calculate the remaining money for their party supplies. They will subtract in multiples of ten and focus on place value.
