### Description

Check out a free sample from this resource!

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.

Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
