# DO YOU TEACH USING PLACE VALUE TO ADD?

Children learn at an early age that numbers simply go on and on, rote counting to a point of boredom or if they are counting items, counting until they run out of items. As they mature, we need to teach them an easier way of counting items, by using the built in system of GROUPS AVAILABLE, groups of tens, hundreds, thousands, etc.

Once they have the basics of addition or adding these groups, they are ready to break apart larger numbers to be able to count them in groups, for ease, for speed, simply for a higher understanding of mental math.

For example:

Many adults do this automatically in their head, we look at the hundreds, tens and ones, add them quickly and then add them all to get a final total.

Even with ones rolling into tens, and tens rolling into hundreds, this is still an easy and effective way to solve problems with three and four digit numbers. But, it is a skill that has to be taught. Most math standards introduce this skill in second grade with tens and ones, then introducing thousands in third grade.

Using Place Value to Add with a Hands-On Lesson:

Give your small groups multiple bundled items....
1. Coffee stirs or straws banded into hundreds, tens and ones with rubber bands or twist ties.
2. Quart bags with 100 beans, snack bags with 10 beans, and beans {ones} not in baggies.
3. Macaroni in baggies. Anything that you can buy inexpensively in bulk works.
4. Base Ten Counting Blocks, etc.
Give them many problems to work out with and without regrouping of their items.

Another Using Place Value to Add Lesson:
An excellent way to introduce or review this skill is with partners and white boards. Let each student write a problem on their board, {or for a more GUIDED LESSON, you write two set problems on the overhead camera} then the students exchange white boards and solve the problem using the expanded place value method.
Allow time for multiple problems and math practice.

I Have Created The Following Resources to Help You Teach, Review, and Remediate How to Use Place Value to Add For Your Class!

My students LOVED having Color By Numbers, Center Games and Task Cards at our Math Centers and your students will too! You can dedicate one of your math centers (math workstations) as a math skill only math center. By changing out the skill each day, each week, or each month, your students already know the directions for using that math center. Your math center can be placed in a folder with the included folder cover and the student can take the center back to their seat if classroom space is limited.

Your students will enjoy the freedom of center games and task cards while learning and reviewing important skills at the same time! This 3rd Grade Math Use Place Value to Add Center Games, Color By Number, and Task Cards Bundle is also perfect for assessment grades for 3rd Grade Math!

There are many ways to use this Use Place Value to Add Math Center Games Resource, here are a few of my favorite ways:

• Use one page as a game board, cut the other page. Place all those cards face down. Have the students turn over one card at a time, solve and place face up on the board. If they are incorrect, the card returns to the bottom of the pile. The winner is the student who places the final card. OR, for a "no winner" version, the goal is for the students to solve the cards independently, but to completely cover the board together. This version can ALSO be played two ways. One way is with the answer page as the game board, another way is with the math problem page as the game board instead.
• You can also play this game with cutting all the cards and matching up the problems with the solutions.
• For movement, place the problem cards around the room and the student(s) have to solve the math problem and leave the correct answer card at that location. Have a second student check the answers to extend the game.
• Mix all the cards together, with two students, deal 5 cards to each student and then place the remaining cards face down. Use as a Go Fish card game!
• Lay all the cards upside down on the floor and use as a Concentration (some call it Memory) Game!

Weekly Lesson Plan Ideas for the Color By Numbers

Monday - Use pages 5 & 6, printed back to back, as a USE PLACE VALUE TO ADD pre-assessment. Plan your small groups for the week around the data from this and your other observations.

You can have the answer key on the board so that they are copying the correct answers as a very basic, low math level activity. OR Once the boys and girls are done, you, or a student, can project the answer key, covering up the problems and call them out one at a time, while revealing the answer. During math rotations, use page 3, the cute cute little boy and his dog solve and color page to review USE PLACE VALUE TO ADD 2-digit and 3-digit WITH NO REGROUPING addition math problems during your student seat work time.
