This is a simple matching activity, where students need to partition numbers by sorting and locating the correct amount of hundreds, tens and ones. It is a great activity for when you are teaching place value and partitioning numbers. I have designed this activity to be used after watching my ‘Split Strategy’ video. However, it does not explicitly refer back to this video, so it will also make sense as an independent resource.
The ‘Split Strategy’ has a number of names depending on what curriculum you teach under. For example – ‘Standard Place Value Partitioning’ or ‘Partitioning Numbers for Addition’ etc. For this resource, I haven chosen to refer to it as the ‘Split Strategy’. This is because it’s the name that I have found sticks the most with the kids that I teach. Here is a basic example so you know what strategy I am referring to…
25 + 34 = ?
20 + 30 = 50
5 + 4 = 9
50 + 9 = 59
I love this strategy and I love teaching it! I hope you and your class enjoy using this resource.
