    Grade 2, Day 4 Math: Addition and Subtraction Fluently Within 1,000

    Estimated Time for 2 Activities: Approximately 30 minutes

    Activity 1-2:

    Overview: Add and subtract numbers within 1,000 with regrouping in ones, tens, and hundreds and across zeros.

    Explanation: You will add and subtract within 1,000 with regrouping and across zeros.

    Things to know:

    1. Sit with someone at home to practice adding or subtracting fluently within 1,000 in the ones and tens place with regrouping and also across zeros.
    2. Add and subtract by using the standard algorithm of addition and subtraction when regrouping.
    3. When regrouping, we can call it “regrouping” or “shifting” the tens. (A parent might think of this as “borrowing” however, we call it regrouping since we aren’t returning or giving back any of the “tens” we needed. 😊)
    4. Specific directions are on the worksheet pages.


    1. Add and subtract within 1,000 with regrouping in the ones, tens and hundreds.  Complete packet pages 22-27.

    2. Subtract within 1,000 with or without regrouping across zeroes. Complete packet page 28.
