Writing Addition Number Stories

Family Note
Before beginning this Home Link, review the vocabulary from the Unit 2 Family Letter with your child: number story, label, unit box, and number model. Encourage your child to make up and solve addition number stories and write addition number models for the stories.
Stress that the answer to a question makes more sense if it has a label.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Question 1.
Tell someone at home what you know about number stories, labels, unit boxes, and number models. Write an addition number story for the picture. Write the answer and an addition number model. Number model:
Number stories :
They are simple descriptions of either real or
imagined events that involve numbers.
Label:
A label is when you are answering a word problem,
for example:
I have 5 chocolate bars and I gave away 2.
How many do I have now?
So its 5-2=3 right? But we have to label it.
So instead of saying “3” my answer would be: 3 chocolate bars.
Unit boxes:
Unit box a box that contains the label or unit
of measure for the numbers in a problem.
A number model in math is a sentence that illustrates
how the parts of a number story are related.
The equation may include addition, subtraction, division and
multiplication and may be expressed as words or in number form.
Story:
In a forest as shown in the picture there are
9 lions in standing and 5 lions are sitting so
overall how many number of lions are there?,
therefore number model is 9 + 5 = 14.

Explanation:
Wrote about number stories, labels, unit boxes, and
number models above, Wrote one story about picture and
addition number model is 9 + 5 = 14.

Practice
Question 2.
2 + 2 = _4_
2 + 2 = 4,
Story: I have 2 mangoes my friend gave 2 more
how many in total  have in all?
Number model: 2 + 2 =4,

Explanation:
Wrote story for 2 + 2 above,
Adding 2 mangoes to 2 mangoes
we will get 4 mangoes in all
So number model is 2 + 2 = 4.

Question 3.
4 + 4 = __8_
4 + 4 = 8,
Story:
Four ducks are already in the pool, four more joined,
how many ducks are there in all in the pool now?
Number model: 4 + 4 =8,

Explanation:
Wrote story for 4 + 4 above,
Adding 4 ducks to 4 ducks we will get 8 ducks in all,
So number model is 4 + 4 = 8.

Question 4. 5 + 5 =10,
Story:
My friend have 5 yellow pencils and I gave
5 green pencils, how many pencils does she have in all?
Number model: 5 + 5 =10,

Explanation:
Wrote story for 5 + 5 above,
Adding 5 yellow pencils to 5 green pencils
we will get 10 pencils in all,
So number model is 5 + 5 = 10.

Question 5. 7 + 7 = 14,
Story:
Number model: 7 + 7 =14,
Story:
Carol have 7 moral story books and 7 comic books,

Doubles Facts and Combinations of 10

Family Note

In second grade children learn and practice many strategies to help them develop fluency with basic addition facts. These strategies are based on facts that children studied in first grade: doubles facts (facts in which a number is added to itself) and combinations of 10 (number pairs that add to 10). Today we sorted facts based on whether they were doubles, combinations of 10, or both.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Question 1.
Complete the addition facts.
a. 2 + 2 = _4_

b. _10_ = 5 + 5

c. _0_ = 0 + 0

d. 1 + 1 = _2_

e. 14

f. 6 – 3 = 3,

g. 16
a. 2 + 2 = 4,

Explanation:
Adding 2 to 2 we will get 4.

b. 5 + 5 = 10,

Explanation:
Adding 5 to 5 we will get 10.

c. 0 + 0 = 0,

Explanation:
Adding 0 to 0 we will get 0.

d. 1 + 1 = 2,

Explanation:
Adding 1 to 1 we will get 2.

e. 7 + 7 =14,
7 + 7 = 14,

Explanation:
Adding 7 to 7 we will get 14.

f. 3 + 3 = 6,

Explanation:
To get missing addition nummber,
We subtract 3 from 6 as 6 -3 = 3,
So that 3 + 3 = 6.
Therefore adding 3 to 3 we will get 6.

g. 8 + 8 = 16,

Explanation:
Adding 8 to 8 we will get 16.

Question 2.
Write four different addition facts with 10 as the sum.
Example: 10 = 4 + 6
a. 10 = _10_ + _0_
b. 10 = _9_ + _1_
c. _8_ + _2_ = 10
d. _7_ + _3_ = 10
a. 10 = 10 + 0,
b. 10 = 9 + 1,
c. 10 = 8 + 2,
d. 10 = 7 + 3,

Explanation:
The addition facts with 10 as the sum are
a.10 = 10 + 0, if we add 0 to 10 we will get 10,
b. 10 = 9 + 1, if we add 1 to 9 we will get 10,
c. 10 = 8 + 1, if we add 2 to 8 we will get 10,
d. 10 = 7 + 3, if we add 3 to 7 we will get 10.

Children learned a new strategy called “the making-10 strategy” to help them develop fluency with the basic addition facts. Success with this strategy depends on children knowing the number pairs that add to 10 or the basic addition facts that have a sum of 10.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Question 1.
Write all the addition facts that have a sum of 10.
Hint: There are 11 different facts.

Use combinations of 10 to help figure out the sums.
Example: 6 + 5 = 11
Helper combination of 10: 6 + 4 = 10,
10 + 0 = 10, 9 + 1 = 10, 8 + 2 = 10,
7 + 3 = 10, 6 + 4 = 10, 5 + 5 = 10,
4 + 6 = 10, 3 + 7 = 10, 2 + 8 = 10,
1 + 9 = 10, 0 + 10 = 10,

Explanation:
The addition facts that have a sum of 10
are when 0 is added to 10 we will get 10,
1 added to 9 we will get 10,

8 + 3 = _11__
Helper combination of 10: _8_ + _2_ = __10 __
8 + 3 = 11,
Helper combination of 10: 8 + 2 = 10,

Explanation:
Given 8 + 3, So adding 3 to 8 we will get 11 and
Helper combination of 10 is adding 2 to 8 we will get 10.

Question 3.
4 + 7 = _11__
Helper combination of 10: _4__ + _6__ = _10__
4 + 7 = 11,
Helper combination of 10: 4 + 6 = 10,

Explanation:

Helper Facts

Family Note

Today we learned about helper facts. Helper facts are facts that we already know and that we can use to help us find answers to facts we may not know. Because we learned the doubles facts (such as 2 + 2 = 4 and 3 + 3 = 6) in first grade, we can use them now as helper facts. For example, knowing 4 + 4 = 8 can help us figure out the answer to 4 + 5. We see that 4 + 5 is 1 more than 4 + 4, so the
answer is 9. We can also use 4 + 4 = 8 to figure out the answer to 4 + 3. We see that 4 + 3 is 1 less than 4 + 4, so the answer is 7.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Helper facts can help you figure out answers to other facts.
Doubles facts can be helper facts.

Example:
3 + 2 = ? 3 + 4 = ?
Helper fact: 3 + 3 = 6
3 + 2 = 5 3 + 4 = 7

Question 1.
5 + 4 = ? 5 + 6 = ?
Helper fact: 5 + 5 = _10__
5 + 4 = _9_ 5 + 6 = _11_
Helper fact: 5 + 5 = _10__
5 + 4 = _9_ 5 + 6 = _11_

Question 2.
? = 7 + 6 ? = 7 + 8
Helper fact: = _14_ 7 + 7
_13_ = 7 + 6 ___ , 15= 7 + 8
Helper fact: = _14_ 7 + 7
_13_ = 7 + 6 ___ , 15= 7 + 8

Solve. Write a helper fact that can help you figure out the answer.

Question 3.
4 + 3 = ?
Helper fact: _6_ + _6_ = _12__
4 + 3 = _7__
Helper fact: _4_ + _4_ = _8__, or 3 + 3 = 6,
4 + 3 = _7__,

Explanation:
4 + 3 = 7,
adding 3 to 4 we will get 7,
Helper fact is  adding 4 to 4 we will get 8 and
adding 3 to 3 we will get 6.

Tell someone at home what you know about helper facts.
Helper facts :
Facts that we already know and that we can use to
help us find answers to facts we may not know.
Because we learned the doubles facts
(such as 2 + 2 = 4 and 3 + 3 = 6) in first grade,
we can use them now as helper facts. For example,
knowing 2 + 2 = 4 can help us figure out the answer to 2 + 3.

The Turn-Around Rule

Family Note

Today we continued exploring the turn-around rule. In this lesson, we created subtraction number stories and examined whether the turn-around rule works for subtraction. We decided the turnaround rule does NOT work for subtraction because changing the order of the numbers produces different results. Creating number stories, writing number models for number stories, and using the
turn-around rule appropriately will all be revisited throughout the year. The problems on this page provide practice with the turn-around rule for addition.
Please return this Home Link to school tomorrow.

Question 1.
Write two number models you can use to solve this number story.
Bill picked 6 peaches from a tree. Roberta picked 8.
How many peaches do they have in all?
Number model: _6 + 8 =14__
Number model: _8 + 6 = 14,__
Number model:  6 + 8 = 14,
Number model:  8 + 6 = 14,

Explanation:
Given Bill picked 6 peaches from a tree. Roberta picked 8
So two number models are
1. 6 + 8 =14 and 2. 8 + 6 = 14,
Therefore number of peaches they do have in all are 14.

Question 2.
Complete each number sentence and then
write the turn-around number sentence.  Explanation:
The number sentence is adding 3 to 12 we will get 15,
adding 3 to 8 we will get 11, now the turn-around
number sentence is adding 12 to 3 we will get 15 and
adding 8 to 3 we will get 11 as
Number sentence : 12 + 3 = 15,
Turn around number sentence : 3 + 12 = 15,
Number sentence : 8 + 3 = 11,
Turn around number sentence : 3 + 8 = 11.

Practice

Question 3.
Solve the facts.
a. 3 + _3_ = 6

b. _5_ + 5 = 10

c. 14 = _7_ + 7

d. 12 = 6 + _6_
a. 3 + _3_ = 6,

Explanation:
Given  3 + ___ = 6, So the missing number is 6 – 3 = 3,
therefore 3 + 3 = 6.

b. _5_ + 5 = 10,

Explanation:
Given  ___ + 5  = 10, So the missing number is 10 – 5 = 5,
therefore 5 + 5 = 10.

c. 14 = _7_ + 7,

Explanation:
Given  ___ + 7 = 14, So the missing number is 14 – 7 = 7,
therefore 7 + 7 = 14.

d. 12 = 6 + _6_,

Explanation:
Given  6 + ___ = 12, So the missing number is 12 – 6 = 6,
therefore 6 + 6 = 12.

Frames and Arrows

Family Note

Today your child used Frames-and-Arrows diagrams. These diagrams show sequences of numbers in which one number follows another according to a rule. Frames-and-Arrows diagrams are made up of shapes called frames and arrows connecting the frames. Each frame contains one of the numbers in the sequence. Each arrow stands for the rule, which tells how to find the number that goes in the
next frame. Here is an example of a Frames-and-Arrows diagram. The arrow rule is “Add 2.” In a Frames-and-Arrows problem, some of the information is left out. To solve the problem, you have to find the missing information. Here are two examples of Frames-and-Arrows problems:
Example 1: Fill in the empty frames according to the rule.  Explanation:
Filled in the empty frames according to the rule as
subtract 4 so wrote 28, 24, 20, 16 and 12 using rule subtract 4 as
28, 28 – 4 = 24, 24 – 4 = 20, 20 – 4 = 16 and
16 – 4 = 12 as shown above.

Example 2: Write the arrow rule in the empty box.  Explanation:
Wrote the arrow rule in the empty box as Add 5 because
10, 10 + 5 = 15, 15 + 5 = 20, 20 + 5 = 25, 25 + 5 = 25.

Ask your child to tell you about Frames-and-Arrows diagrams. Take turns with your child making up and solving Frames-and-Arrows problems like the examples given above.
Please return the second page of this Home Link to school tomorrow.
Frames-and-Arrows diagrams are made up of shapes called frames and arrows that connect the frames.
Each frame contains one of the numbers in the sequence.
Each arrow stands for a rule that tells which number
goes in the next frame. Explanation:
The arrow rule is add 2, so the frames are
32, 32 + 2 = 34, 34 + 2 = 36, 36 + 2 = 38,
38 + 2 = 40.
2. Explanation:
The arrow rule is subtract 5, so the frames are
45, 45 – 5 = 40, 40 – 5 = 35, 35 – 5 = 30, 30 – 5 = 25.

3. Explanation:
The arrow rule is add 10, so the frames are
38, 38 + 10 = 48, 48 + 10 = 58, 58 + 10 = 68,
68 + 10 = 78.

4. Explanation:
The arrow rule is add 3, so the frames are
8, 8 + 3 = 11, 11 + 3 = 14,  14 + 3 = 17,
17 + 3 = 20.

5. Explanation:
The arrow rule is subtract 3, so the frames are
21, 21 – 3 = 18, 18 – 3 = 15, 15 – 3 = 12, 12 – 3 = 9.
