We are getting so smart in math! We've started to learn about 2-digit numbers. Here are some pictures of us building 2-digit numbers with cards and beads. We learned that the digits represent how many groups of ten and how many extras are in a given number. By using the cards and the beads, students gain a better understanding of the numbers as a numeral and a quantity. Next we will start to compare 2-digit numbers. We have also been working on "missing partner" story problems. We can use math mountains, circle drawings and/ or equations to solve them.
