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!

On  September 2, 2012,  Buyer asked:
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?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 2, 2012Shelley Gray answered:
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
