### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is part of the addition portion of the Mental Math Strategy Collection.

To purchase all six addition units together and receive 6 for the price of 5, please view the link below:
Mental Math Units: the Complete Addition Collection

Doubles are some of the most important facts to memorize. Fortunately, they are also often the easiest for students. Doubles occur all around us in real life, for example our fingers and toes are doubles (5 + 5), egg cartons are arranged in doubles (6 + 6), and the wheels on a vehicle are arranged in doubles (2 + 2).

When students know their doubles, they are more easily able to use mental math to calculate near doubles.

This unit includes everything you need to teach the mental math strategy of 'doubles,' including independent/partner based learning activities, a math center, whole-class kinesthetic learning activities and much more! Not only will students work with doubles equations such as 4+4 and 6+6, but they will also learn how to use the doubles strategy for addends that differ by two such as 5+7 and 2+4. Please see the free preview for a full product description.

Enjoy!

### Product Questions & Answers

I am not able to download the file from the main TPT wesite in my purchases. It says the page does not exist. :( I have already paid..
Hi there. Sorry for the troubles you are experiencing. If you could contact TpT Support with this problem they will get it figured out for you. Just copy and paste the link below into your browser and fill out a support ticket. They are usually very quick getting back to people:

https://support.teacherspayteachers.com/

Hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything else that I can do for you,

Shelley
trying to download the freebie via your email but it says I am not authorized. Am I doing something wrong. It is Sunday. Thanks.
bratpaklk@yahoo.com THANK you That worked. YOU ROCK!!!
Hi there! I'm really not sure why it is doing this for some people. Please try downloading it via the link below and save it to your computer, as I will be deleting it from this link tomorrow night.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdby6ue7p7a0u8s/Doubles.pdf

I will also be keeping all other mental math resources 20% off until tomorrow night (Monday night).

Sorry about the troubles. Let me know if you experience any other problems.

Shelley

Love your stuff but I too am getting not authorized...
Any help is appreciated!

Hi there! This has been happening all day for some people, and I have no idea why. I have uploaded it to Dropbox for tonight and will keep it there through tomorrow. Could you try downloading from this link and let me know if it works? You will need to copy and paste it into your browser.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdby6ue7p7a0u8s/Doubles.pdf
When I tried to down load the doubles packet I received a message that I was not a aunthorized user. Not sure why that happened. You posted it was free today. Any assistnace would be greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU for creating valuable materials to reinforce concepts and skills making learnign FUN!

Hi Amy. I really don't know why this is happening for some people. I am going to keep it free through tomorrow just because of the problems. However, I have also uploaded it to Dropbox and will keep it there for a couple of days. Could you try downloading from there and let me know if you are able to get it?

Just copy and paste this link into your browser:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdby6ue7p7a0u8s/Doubles.pdf

Shelley
I am unable to download the freebie. It is saying I am not authorized. ? Looks great, if I can get it. I am also looking at some of your others. You have great stuff! :)
Not authorized?? That is very strange. I am going to send a ticket to TpT support. Keep trying, and let me know if you still can't get it in the next couple of hours.
I would like to know if your Mental Math Strategy Units also have practice sheets or assessment sheets for each specific mental math skill and if so, about how many are there?
Hi there! Yes, each strategy unit comes with a range of activities including independent practice sheets, partner work, games, centers, etc. I have not included a specific assessment component, but any of the practice sheets can be used as assessment. I also like to assess by observing students while they complete the math center activities. Each strategy unit is 40+ pages long. If you are thinking about purchasing them, be sure to consider purchasing as a package, rather than individually, as it will get you 6 units for the price of 5. Here is the link to the complete addition collection: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Mental-Math-Strategy-Units-the-Complete-Addition-Collection. From there you will be able to see a link to the complete subtraction collection. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Have a great day,

Shelley
