Product Description

This is a set of resources to help you introduce and teach the monkey in the middle addition fact strategy. It is a perfect pack of materials to help your first and second grade math students understand this strategy. Monkey in the Middle addition equations are also known as number in between and doubles plus 2. As a prerequisite, your students need to understand flip-flop or turn around equations and be fluent with the doubles addition equations to 18. The introductory activities are concrete and require multi-linking cubes (the ones that link on all sides), 2 sets of 10 in two different colors, for each participating student or pair of students. There are additional activities with pictures, numbers, or equations to develop familiarity with the number sequences and equations underlying this strategy. I have included color and black/ gray/ white options. Choose the activities that best suit your students’ needs.

The addition equations covered in this resource:

3 + 5 and 5 + 3

4 + 6 and 6 + 4

5 + 7 and 7 + 5

6 + 8 and 8 + 6

7 + 9 and 9 + 7

These equations, except 5 + 7 and 7 + 5, can be solved using other common addition strategies. Nevertheless, monkey in the middle is still a concept worth understanding and when recognized can quickly be applied.
