After the students really have a good understanding of addition, I teach them some memorizing strategies and explain that the goal is to just know the answer to the problems. This is 1 week worth of math lessons (20-30 min. per day) focusing on Adding 1 and 0, Doubles, Doubles Plus One, Making Tens and the Commutative Property of Addition. This is a great continuation of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½Addition Counting Strategies.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ These lessons are part of a group of lessons covering all these topics in my ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½Addition Strategies PackÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½. Each lesson has partner work, individual work and a ticket out the door to ensure the student's understanding. Some of the lessons are asking the students to use a graphic organizer to explain their thinking. It is a great way to start off a successful year!! Directly aligned with the Common Core Standards and includes many opportunities for student engagement!
