Module 4 Basic Facts and Place Value (Feb / Mar)

In this unit, the students will be working with concrete and visual models to gain an understanding of place value for ones and tens, including teen numbers and multiples of ten.  They will read and write numerals to represent a number of objects.  They will understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones.  They will compare numbers, identify 10 more and less, and use place value to help add and subtract. 
The students will be:
  • reading 3-digit numbers
  • writing 3-digit numbers
  • identifying 1 more / less than a number
  • identifying 10 more / less than a number
  • grouping numbers as tens and ones
  • continuing to work with addition facts
