## Building Our Understanding of Number

We've been working on developing strategies to solve addition number models. First, we developed strategies for solving number models to 20. We learned to use a number line, use our number line, and developed counting on strategies. As we worked with numbers we started to find ways to take numbers apart to solve more complex problems with greater efficiency. We learned to use doubles, make connections to other number models we know, and develop our fact power.

We then took these skills we had learned and worked to apply them to numbers to 100. We developed more strategies for working with bigger numbers. Students are gaining an understanding of place value as we work.

Students need to continue to practice to develop their strategies to build flexibility and efficiency.
