Adding and Subtracting on a Number Line FREEBIE

It's hard to believe, but we've already been in school a month. 

We're about to access our first math unit in a week. This unit has included adding and subtracting using a variety of strategies including place value blocks, break-apart method (place value) and number lines. 
These strategies are very unfamiliar to most of our students' parents. 

To help explain and show parents examples of the strategies we're teaching in the classroom,
 I've created these PARENT GUIDES.

 They include step by step illustrations and explanations of how to use these strategies. In fact these strategies were the topic of most of the questions my students' parents had at our recent Open House.  After a mini lesson for parents, I handed these out for them to take home. 
 Here is a FREEBIE from this packet that you can use in your classroom now,
as a homework assignment or extra practice.
