The homework this week is ‘Practice Makes Perfect’ and is due in Wednesday 23 November.

I can add on a number line.

I would like Cubes to add along a number line with single digit numbers (e.g. 4 +3 = ?)

I would like Spheres to add along a number line with a two digit number and a single digit number (e.g. 23 + 5).

I would like Cylinders to add a single digit number onto a two digit number using an numberless number line. For example, in the sum 48 + 9 they should do as follows:

+2                    +7

——————————————-

48            50                          57

I would like Cones to add two digit numbers using the method above or this alternative: In the sum 23 + 35 they can:

+ 5            + 10                       +10                     +10

————————————————————————————-

23          28                  38                          48                        58

We don’t usually do ‘Practice Makes Perfect’ but I really feel the children would benefit from solving some subtraction calculations at home.
