What educators are saying

I have been using this with a small group of 3rd graders that need extra practice with the skills they learned last year.



Teaching Common Core? Teaching without the traditional algorithm? This has everything you might need to teach common core standards 2.OA.1, 2.NBT.5 and 2.NBT.7. Common core encourages students to explore ways to solve problems without the traditional algorithm. This pack has 4 addition strategies and 2 subtraction strategies to teach your students. There are very clear letters to inform the parents of these new strategies. There are also posters to use as visuals for your students and MANY practice pages with word problems too! Also included are formative and summative assessment pages AND a fun center activity!! Over 80 pages!!

**Please see the preview for a closer look at what is included**

*Pictures and tips to help you with your lessons
*2 Double digit sheets without regrouping for addition and subtraction
*Place value mat, place value blocks, and tens frame for those that need more assistance.
