Are you going to be teaching 2-digit addition with regrouping? This is a tricky concept to teach ~ but not with this unit! This is a 2 week, must-have math packet! Your students will love the cute pirate theme, too! This unit will help you to teach your students how to regroup one step at a time. By breaking the steps down and introducing them slowly you will guarantee your students' success. Then put the steps together to actually do regrouping ~ you will be so excited to see the light come on!


Updated: Just in case you don't want to have your students work in centres or you don't want to print the coloured cards - I have included all the pages with the questions written in. I have also added answer sheets.


Week 1:
During week one you will complete a page together as guided practice. Since you are teaching a new step each day the math tubs can not cover a new skill. With this in mind I have included 5 math tubs that give the students extra practice with 2-digit addition without regrouping. Since the children will be completing a worksheet with you and then a math tub activity ~ I made the math tub activities shorter and they will only have 9 questions to do. You don't want them to feel overloaded.

Each math tub comes with cute question cards and a recording sheet.
Math Tubs: (label cards included)
*Follow The Map!
*Find The Lost Treasure!
*Walk The Plank!
*Ahoy, Matey!
*Blimey Mate!

Week 2:
Now the excitement begins! Your students will feel so grown-up while they put their new skills to work. I have included a daily warm-up page with 4 questions, per day, to be done together as a group. It is good review before your students begin their math tub for the day. I have included 5 math tubs for your students to have independent practice with 2-digit addition with regrouping. All the student sheets are done in a place value chart so that your students can keep the steps better organized. I have my students highlight the ones column so they remember where to start. Each center has adorable question cards and a student response sheet.

Math Tubs: (label cards included)
*Ye Mighty Treasure!
*Lands Ahoy!
*Ahoy Me Hearties!
*Shiver Me Timbers!

Week 3:
I have added another booklet with 5 worksheets for your students to complete to ensure that they have mastered regrouping. No prep for this booklet besides photocopying.


I am not fan of loose sheets so I staple together a copy of the tracking sheet and a copy of all the worksheets together to make a booklet. I record any observations I make about the child and after marking their daily work I record how they did each day. This is a great way to give your students constructive daily feedback. At the end of the week I send the booklet home for the parents. They really appreciate being kept up-to-date on their child's progress and the booklets are a great review for the end of unit test. You can always keep the tracking sheet for documentation as well.
I know you won't be disappointed with this unit!


I have included photos of anchor charts that I have used in my own room for you to use as a reference when making your own.


If you are looking for unit that teaches your students how to subtract with regrouping you will want to look at my unit called Subtraction Safari {Teaching 2-Digit Subtraction With Regrouping}


Once your students have mastered both addition and subtraction with regrouping use my unit Wild About Regrouping {Addition and Subtraction}
for a review of both skills.
