Let’s explore some strategies you can use inside your classroom to teach 3 digit addition more effectively. So let’s dive in!

Understanding The Basics of 3 Digit Addition Problems

To build a solid foundation of 3 digit addition skills in your students, start by introducing the concept of place value.

Students should know the value of every digit in a 3 digit number. And that should happen even before they begin practicing their addition skills.

Once your students have mastered the place values, it’s time to introduce them to add 2 and 3 digit numbers. This is the time when you gradually introduce them to the concept of regrouping.

Building your student’s skills in this way will allow them to make sense of what they are learning sequentially.
