# My Dog Partial Sums

Partial Sums Doggie

Well I got a dog named partial sums,
Mother said she’s smart,
She knows tens and ones
I took her to my class,
To see if she could add,
And she’s so smart, now I’m glad!

I showed her the math,
she pulled out something neat
She lined up place values,
It was something sweet,
Hundreds tens and ones,
I named my dog, partial sums

Partial sums, yes partial sums,
I named my dog, partial sums
Partial sums, yes partial sums,

And here’s how she did it.
Wrote them underneath
Partial sums!

It’s something she did know,
8 tens is 80
She wrote them down below!

she put them in the stack
3 and 3 hundreds
That’s a doubles fact!
3 partial sums we’ll see,
She looked up from her work
And barked 683!

Partial sums, partial sums,
I named my dog, partial sums
Partial sums, partial sums,

Add the ones, and the tens, and the hundreds,
Now we’re really having fun kids!
Add the ones, and the tens, and the hundreds,
Now we’re adding partial sums kids!

My dog became our teacher,

Then she showed another,
Place value is the trick,
One’s tens hundreds,

And here’s how she did it.
Wrote them underneath
Partial sums!

It’s something she did know,
5 tens is 50
She wrote them down below!

And put them in the stack
6 and 3 hundreds
She looked up from her work
And barked 954!

Partial sums, partial sums,
I named my dog, partial sums
Partial sums, partial sums,

Add the ones, and the tens, and the hundreds,
Now we’re really having fun kids!
Add the ones, and the tens, and the hundreds,
Now we’re adding partial sums kids!

Well She did one more,
And she gave us the scoop,
She told us this was new,
Because we’d have to regroup!
More than 9 in the one’s place,
We’d have to use a ten,
No big deal, she showed us again!

6 and 6 make 12,
All by ourselves,
a 2 in the ones place
a 1 in the tens,
We could make a 12,
Tens are our friends!
