Do you need a way to have your students understand addition and subtraction?
This Common Core Aligned Lapbook should help.
4th Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:
4.NBT.3- Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
4.NBT.4- Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
4.OA.3- Solve multistep word problems.
3rd Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:
Students create flipbooks to insert into a Lapbook. However, the flipbooks can also be inserted into an interactive journal

Lots of great review and room for students to create their own examples.
For those of you who have copy limitations, I created two extra "copy friendly" pages for you to just print out the "tips for understanding" and the "show what you know" concepts and the students can create their own flipbooks with construction paper or sentence strips. There are also "copier friendly" versions of the colored pages.
My students love making lapbooks, however, when time is a factor, I end up using the flipbooks in our interactive math journals instead!
About the Seller
After 20 years teaching grades 1, 2, 4, and 5, I am beginning a new adventure as an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teacher. I am excited to branch out and explore new ways of teaching. Over the years, I have created resources that fit the needs of my classroom. You will mostly find math materials because for the last three years, I was only teaching math. However, now that I am entering the world of English Language Learners, you will begin to find materials that will help ELL students in addition to helping all students with reading, writing, listening and speaking. I believe strongly in creating materials that provide opportunities for students to be engaged in hands on learning as well as providing them opportunities to express what they know in creative ways. I am so excited to share them with you!
