Students will be able to estimate and subtract numbers up to 9,999 with and without regrouping.
When students need to find the estimated answer, they are expected to be able to recognize words in the problem like: about, closest to, approximately, and nearest in order to determine that they need to estimate before they subtract. See below.

When students are asked to find the actual answer, they are expected to be able to simply subtract the two numbers together as they are. See below. When regrouping, students should work through the problems one place (column) at a time only regrouping when necessary.

September 24th28th
Students will compare and order whole numbers 9,999 or less.
We teach students to either turn their notebook paper sideways in order to write in the columns or to use grid paper in order to line up and compare or order their numbers. See examples below:
Students are taught to stack their numbers in order to line up the places correctly. They then look at the front of the numbers in order to start comparing/ordering. Once a number is put in order, cross it out so that you can focus on what is left. 3rd graders do not order more than three numbers.
Due to missed days from Hurricane Florence, no new homework will be issued this week. Refer back to the week of 9/1014
