This is the fourth booklet in the Hopping on the Number Chart series. In Level Four, students will grow familiar with the hundreds chart while playing with addition and subtraction concepts. They will also write equations to match their hops. The students circle the "start" number and then decide how many “hops” it takes to reach the number destination. (This is different from books 1 – 3 where students counted the stated number of hops to find the answer. Now the answer is given, and they have to determine how many hops.) Then the student writes an equation to match the hopping scenario. Finally, the student writes the related addition or subtraction fact. When a student "graduates" from Level Four, he/she moves to Level Five. Each level increases a bit in difficulty. Use these booklets as a whole-class lesson, as a math center activity, as a challenge booklet, or as work to do if other math work is completed. Copy the booklet one sided to two sided, side staple top and bottom, cut in half so that one set creates two booklets. Happy hopping!! :) Management Tip: Do not allow students to progress from one page to the next unless they have been checked by you. Place a star on all corrected pages as a “license” to move on. This will ensure that no student gets off on the wrong track and continues on that wrong path. Happy Hopping!! :) Lisa Buchholz
