We are working on a unit that focuses on adding three digit numbers.  We will be learning different strategies to help us find the sum of multiple three-digit numbers such as:  number lines, number grids, expanded form, making ten, doubles, and Base-10.

We will be working on writing explanatory/procedural paragraphs involving the steps it takes to create or do something.  We will be writing about the process of making hot chocolate, making snowmen, and some science processes.
