Addition Fact Mental Strategy Anchor Charts
This set of 9 addition fact mental strategy anchor wall charts (plus title heading and doubles facts charts) is a wonderful way to provide visual cues for explicit strategy instruction for math facts in first and second grades. These classroom tested addition fact strategies and their cues provide the visual and verbal hooks that enable students to recall and apply them for basic addition facts to 20. They may be used to provide effective support for the whole class or for intervention and resource groups. This revised (June 2016) set includes both color and black/ gray/ white options. In addition, small quarter page size mini-charts have been added. These may be hole punched and placed on rings to send home with individual students or to keep handy at school for easy reference. All of the basic addition facts to 20, except 7 + 4/ 4 + 7, are covered with this set of strategies.

Addition Fact Mental Strategy Flashcards
This set of addition fact flashcards is the perfect support for explicit strategy instruction in first and second grades. They correlate with my addition fact strategy anchor charts and worksheets. Each flashcard has a think bubble with a picture and/or word cue for the corresponding addition strategy. There are at least 2 flashcard versions for each strategy except Count Up. There is a black and white version available for each strategy. I would not expect anyone to copy and use them all. Choose the sets that you know will be most beneficial for your students.

Addition Fact Mental Strategy Worksheets
These are a set of systematic, sequential worksheets to reinforce identifying, discriminating, and applying mental strategies to add basic facts to 20 with first and second graders. These materials are appropriate for general instruction with a whole class or small group/ individual intervention. With the exception of the word problem worksheets, they are designed for either guided or independent practice. These sets of addition fact strategy worksheets are cumulative, based on students learning the previous strategies.

Please note: The methods and materials for introducing each strategy are not included in this resource. They also assume you have taught the commutative property, i.e. flip-flop or turn around equations.

Beginning with the second strategy, Count Up, these worksheets are included in each strategy set:
• Identifying equations associated with the current strategy (color)
• Discriminating between learned strategies (color)
• Given two strategies, sort equations (cut and glue)
• Given two sets of sorted equations, write the strategy
• Apply learned strategies to solve equations
• Apply learned strategies to solve word problems
• Assessments (forms A and B) for strategies learned
3 worksheets in each set are half-page, with 2 of the same on one page.
