This bundle includes a read-aloud book structured after the trade book Brown Bear, Brown Bear with words, pictures, and examples of each of five addition strategies (doubles, doubles plus one, doubles minus one, counting on, and making ten). The book is effective in teaching and review strategies as the repetitive text allows students to read along, and the visuals allow students to identify the strategy being used to add. Students will want to read this book again and again!
Also included in this bundle is a student book with an "I can" format that allows students to see a model problem of each strategy and then practice adding using the strategy with model support. Next, students can extend their learning to adding three digits using the strategy. The booklet can be stapled together to make a math book for which they are the author, and they can share their work in many ways.
Another resource this bundle includes is a set of posters with visuals showing each of the 5 addition strategies. These are valuable tools to hang as anchor charts and refer to as students learn and practice each strategy, showing a clear visual of exactly what each process entails.
As a whole, this bundle will provide you with resources to support engaging and meaningful lessons that your students are sure to remember and enjoy! Common Core aligned!
