This lesson teachers 3 and 4-digit addition with regrouping. The pirate themed flipchart helps students not just regroup when adding, but understand why they need to regroup when adding. Includes:
-"Pirate Adventure" story in which students put Pirate Punch into singles, packs of 10, and packs of 100 to explain the purpose of regrouping;
-Word problems using bar charts to illustrate addition problems;
-Practice page for addition with regrouping;
-Pages full of "magic" in which answers magically appear, treasure pops open, and more! Keeps students attention for the whole lesson, great for visulizing and helping students explaining the why and the how of math!
-A link to the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives with instructions on completing a wonderful activity that really helps students see regrouping in action.
