Common Core Based
The common core standards want the students to understand how to add 3 digit numbers in relation to the associative property of addition. So the following worksheets have been set up with this property in mind. The worksheets start with using low numbers, which the students should already know how to add when just two digits are together. Knowledge of two digit adding allows the students to concentrate on learning the process of adding 3 digits using the associative property of addition.
I have step by step directions for introducing this process slowly to assure all students can gain knowledge of this skill. Several of the worksheets purposefully have the same problems on them so the students can compare and see that it does not matter which order digits are added, the same answer will arise.
I have also include a “mat” called “Juggling Judd”. This mat is to be used with counters. It is to help students to visualize the objects and see it does not matter which order the numbers are added, the answer will still be the same.
Every class of students are different. So depending on the students level of capability will determine if the “Juggling Judd” mat needs to be introduced at the beginning or not. The Juggling Judd mat instructions are put at the end of the instructions but may be moved where appropriate for the group of students being taught.
Also this packet of worksheets was designed only to supplement a unit on adding 3 digit numbers. I find most math books do not have enough worksheets in order for the students to get the repetition they need so that they may fully grasp the concept as needed. This packet supplies plenty of worksheets for repetition.
I also have several other math packets covering various common core topics. Go to seller Claire Guidry to pull up list of topics.
I have a passion for teaching and have put together packets about teaching reading and writing to young scholars. I have put together these packets with the methods that I feel give the most bang for our precocious time. I teach kindergarten and I have had great success in getting my students reading and writing at a mid first grade level by the end of kindergarten. So I am paying it forward by sharing what I know works. Go to seller Claire Guidry to find the list. All of the packets are $1 except for the ones that I combined to make it easier for purchasing.
Thanks for caring about the students you teach. Claire Guidry
