This week, we are continuing our study of multi-digit addition. One strategy we use in the classroom is called the Partial-Sums Method. Challenge your student to share this method with you at home. The picture to your left is a problem we completed together in class. Below is a movie made by a fellow teacher to remind students how to use this method to solve any addition problem they may encounter. We will be learning the traditional algorithm at the end of the week. After we have learned all of our strategies, each student will pick the strategy that works best for them!
