This is a one-page download that highlights the five addition strategies listed here: counting on, doubles, doubles +1, doubles+2 and making a ten. I print on cardstock and have students cut out the cards. Then, when given an addition fact, students must show the card that identifies the strategy they used to find their answer. Teachers can call on multiple students to explain thier thinking, which shows the class that multiple strategies can work on the same problem. After the lesson, I staple the strategy cards together with the cover card, called Beary-Smart Addition Strategies. I then send it home like a book.
I use these cards with a flipchart for the promethean board, available in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store. It is called "Beary Smart Addition Strategies Flipchart."
I hope that you and your students find this activity helpful and engaging. Thanks for downloading! ~ Sara
