Learning 2-digit and 3-digit regrouping is hard, don't make it harder with worksheets! Instead, students can learn and have fun by playing games and completing regrouping activities that engage each and every single learner. Worksheet free!

Our 3-digit addition week even has a superhero theme that your students will just LOVE! Regrouping can be a challenge, but if we make it high-interest then our students will buy into the concept, work hard, and be willing to tackle it daily! After being taught the steps, we use repetition as the key to making the concept stick.

For word problems, students will use the PSA strategy for step-by-step instructions on solving word problems. This system was developed by Hope King and you can find more about it here: HOPE'S PSA

-What is the Magic of Math?

The Magic of Math is a series of math lesson plans and activities that can be used as your math curriculum or as a supplement to the program that you are already using. We provide the daily lesson plans, word problems, mini-lesson, activity, and interactive notebook entries for four weeks at a time. If you don't have time for it all, that's okay too! You can just pick and choose the pieces that you want to incorporate into your math block!

-Are these activities repeats from other units you have?

Absolutely NOT! We create all-new activities for each Magic of Math unit. They are all unique to this purchase and are not copied/pasted from things we have previously made.

-What is the difference between Magic of Math and other units you have?

Magic of Math is organized as daily lesson plans with everything you need rather than just activities.


It is NOT a collection of worksheets. You will not find any worksheets in this series. Instead, we use games, hands-on activities, engaging mini-lessons, and interactive notebooks to build our curriculum. We do try to keep in mind the amount of prep that is involved with the lessons, but some things will need to be printed, cut, and put together to use in your classroom.

Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
