How many times have you seen students do addition with regrouping and when you ask them to explain their thinking, they told you that they just carried ONE instead of one group of TEN over to the tens place?!
Four Corner Addition is a strategy to help students visualize and see how place value is connected to addition. It reinforces understanding of this relationship and is another way to help students understand the idea of regrouping in a visual way.
What is included:
- 3 example slides introducing Four Corner Adding and reinforcing place value concepts
- 14 slides with two practice questions broken down step by step for students to try
- 4 sets of practice questions
- 1 template for you to use if you think your students need additional practice
