Place Value to Thousands: Subtracting Across Zeros
In this installment of our Place Value handout series we explore 3 strategies for subtracting across zeros: Counting Up, the Subtraction Zero Trick, and the Standard Subtraction Algorithm. We break it all down in the mini-lesson and bring it home with lots of engaging practice questions (just like always). We hope you like it!
If you do
like it, you should come back and take a look at our Place Value with Addition and Subtraction within 1,000 Bundle
. It’s a money-saver, a time-saver, and (as evidenced by the sentiments expressed in its reviews) a life-saver.
Anyway, let’s get back focused on this handout. Have a look at how we’ve got it all set up.
Here's what we provide:
* Mini-Lesson: Learn the Skill
-Skill is laid out in an easily digestible format with vocabulary, definitions, diagrams and an example problem. Students have this tool at their fingertips while completing the assignment.
* Use What You Know: Apply the Skill
-Offers immediate reinforcement of the skill. Questions approach problems from more than one angle to ensure full understanding.
* Show What You Know: Word Problems
-This section helps students practice determining what a question is asking them, as well as how to recognize and use key words.
* Write What You Know: Writing in Math
-This section helps students practice expressing their reasoning strategies in complete sentences.
* Prove What You Know: Test Prep
-Students can never be TOO ready for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests, so here they practice good test-taking strategies with multiple choice questions.
* Spiral Review
-Kids' brains are like sponges, but knowledge can leak back out if they don't re-soak, so to speak. This review dusts the cobwebs off of earlier units.
* Answer Key
-Time is money (or rest, or quality time with your family, or really whatever you want to spend it doing), so we always include answer keys for the teacher-on-the-go!
* Print in color for best results
* Consider printing front and back for green points
* Consider splitting up the longer handouts (more than 2 pages) across multiple days (i.e. odd/even)
* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)
* Keep being awesome
