Product Description

Here is a free sample from my Monkey in the Middle Addition Fact Strategy resource. It is designed to help you introduce this strategy in first and second grade. 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. I have included a work mat and equation cards, in color and black/ white. This introductory activity is concrete and requires 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.

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.

This resource was crafted by Judy, a teacher with a master’s degree and more than 35 years of teaching experience.
