Our First Math Videos

One of our maths groups is learning how to 
add tens to a 2-digit number. 
Another group of children already have this skill so their task this week has been to make videos explaining the process:

Do you have another method for solving problems like these?
Can you solve 35 + 20 and explain your thinking?


  1. Hi, I loved your videos, you did a great job explaining your thinking. Thank you, I'm going to do the same with my students. Ms Camden @qldteacher

  2. Dear B4,

    Well done on creating such fabulous videos! I'm sure your explanations will help your friends in your class ... and in other classes around the world!

    You are very clever to be able to add tens to two digit numbers. This strategy is much easier than counting on by ones.

    Here is a question for you, when you're adding two numbers, which number do you start with?

    Best wishes,
    Mrs M☀rris

    1. Dear Mrs Morris
      When you are adding numbers you start at the bigest number. Then you cont in the small number

      warm wishes

    2. Dear Neil,

      Thanks for your great reply. Starting with the biggest number is an excellent strategy.

      Your class has inspired Miss Jordan and me. We are thinkng of making some videos like this with 4KM and 4KJ soon.

      Best wishes,
      Mrs M☀rris
