Compensation In Subtraction

Today we learned a new subtraction strategy called compensation.  When you subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers check to see if you have a Big Bottom.  If the digit in the bottom number is bigger than the digit in the top number, you can compensate.  You compensate by making the top digit a 9.  Whatever you added to the top to get 9, you also have to add to the bottom digit.  Then proceed to subtract.  This makes subtraction easier without having to regroup.  It’s one of those cool math tricks!!!

Mulitplicative Form of Addition 12/4/11

Dear Parents,
This year I am teaching your children several different strategies for adding large numbers.  The strategy we are working on this month is called “The Multiplicative Form of Addition”.  “The Multiplicative Form of Addition” is the next step that will aid your child in understanding addition with regrouping.  This is the beginning of converting the visual more concrete method of picture proof addition into a more abstract form.   It converts the pictures into its numerical representations.  Instead of drawing the pictures, this form shows how many of each picture is being used in the numeral.  Below is an example of The Multiplicative Form.   I have also posted it under the Homework Post and on my Homework Page.  If you need help or more explanation, e-mail me at mbruner@wsd.net or call at 801-452-4580.  Thanks for all you do.

Mrs. Bruner

567 = 5(100) + 6(10) + 7(1)
+65 =                6(10) + 5(1)
5(100) +12(10)* + 12(1)**

5(100)+1(100)+2(10)+1(10)+2(1)=

6(100)+3(10)+2(1) =  632

*10 tens = 100      **10 ones = 10

Bead -A-Reader/Ken Garff 9/12/11

Dear Parents,

            This year we are asking each child to read at least 20 minutes a night.  I am sending a reading chart home so your children can keep track of their reading minutes.  Your children will earn a bead for every 20 minutes read at home.  When your children have earned 50 beads, they will receive a small prize from the prize jar.  We call the “BEAD – A – READER”. 

            Reading record charts will be sent home every Monday.  I ask them to be turned in the following Monday.  This way they can count minutes read over the weekend too.  I add up the minutes on Monday night and the two top readers with the most minutes for that week, will get to keep a reading trophy on their desk for that week.  Every week the minutes will be added and new winners picked.  If your child turns in their minutes late, they will not be selected for the trophy for that week.

            In order to earn tickets for the Ken Garff bike drawing, your children must read at least 5 days a week.  If they read 7 days, they get two tickets for that week. 

            Research shows that the more time spent reading, the more fluent and stronger reader your children become. If your children are reading, be sure to have them fill in their charts and turn them in so that they can be rewarded for their efforts. 

Thanks for your help and support.

Mrs. Bruner

 

Please sign and return, indicating that you have read and understand The Bead-A-Reader and Ken Garff reading programs.
