We continue with our study of tens and ones.  We will use various combinations of tens and ones to show a number. (Example: 67 can be represented as 6 tens and 7 ones or 5 tens and 17 ones.)  We will also use our drawings of tens and ones to compare numbers for more than or less than.

We continue finding 10 more and 10 less than a given number.  We will practice this skill using the 120 Chart and using groups of ten. We will also practice adding and subtracting with tens/groups of ten.

We will continue our study of tens and ones and relating this to ones place and tens place in numbers. We will continue our look at the 120 Chart for patterns we see. We will use the 120 Chart to find missing numbers in a number line and for counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. We will continue finding 1 more than a given number, 2 more, and 5 more.

Practiced skills continue to include adding three numbers together to get our sum. 

We continue to practice our addition facts; subtraction facts; using addition and subtraction to solve word problems; using addition and subtraction to compare; fact families; number bonds; numbers/number words; counting to 120; and odd and even numbers.

We will continue identifying time to the hour and helf hour on an analog clock and a digital clock.

The Friday Test is two rows of addition facts and two rows of subtraction facts to be completed at school.
