Please note that we have started working plus sums as already explained in my blog of two days or so ago. May I please point out that the method is the one explained ie 35 + 25
35 + 20 = 55 (the 20 is added to the 35 by counting in tens)
55 + 5 = 60 ( the 5 is added to the 55 by counting in ones)
NB: the second two digit number being plused is sectioned into the tens (the 20) and then the units (the 5).
IMPORTANT: It is therefore very important that the children study and practise saying the numbers in tens especially when going over the 100. Example 84 + 60 = 144.
I would really appreciate if parents were to give a helping hand where necessary please.
