Three Digit Addition and Subtraction is Fun!This week in math we have been reviewing three-digit addition and subtraction. Let's be honest, this isn't a very exciting topic in math. Since we finished up the unit in our math series, we have continued to work on this skill. Three-digit add/sub is kind of our big hurrah in second grade these days so I figure the students should have a firm grasp on it before leaving me.
Each day we have done a different activity to practice this skill. Each one has been engaging, interesting, and fun. Today when I told them they would be practicing this skill once more, they actually got excited...over three-digit addition and subtraction, my friends. Weird, but awesome! Here are a few of the activities we've done.
Spin a Number Sentence: I had the students complete an addition and subtraction version of this activity. They used a paperclip and the spinners at the top of their page to build number sentences. Once again, there was a lot of announcing going on, "Whoa, I got 638!" I figured as long as they were excited about what they were doing, I'd let it go. They loved this!
All of these activities came from my Three-Digit Addition and Subtraction Fun Pack. Since we haven't used all of the activities in the pack yet, we will likely do some more review of this skill next week. I think I'll keep it secret and surprise them (still can't get over how much they are liking this skill-yipee!).Share It:
