+ Addition +

We are AWESOME at ADDITION!!!!!!!
Today we used lollies as base ten blocks, where students solved BIGGER addition problems than they've ever tackled before!!

The musk sticks represent the tens.  The M&M's represent the ones.  Students selected a card with an addition question on it, then used the lollies to model and solve the question. 

Once they began modelling the problem and adding the ones (M&M's) before the tens (musk sticks)column, some students began to see that they could work out the answer using the same adding method, but WITHOUT the musk sticks!


I filled the board with addition sums and we challenged ourselves to finish as many as we could! Unfortunately there's no pics of the competitors hard at work, only a snapshot of the board!
