The reproducible workbook encourages students to learn a number of different strategies to find an answer to addition problems.
* Count on strategy
* Number pattern strategy
* Combination of 2 numbers to make up the sum
* Turn around strategy
* Strategy of doubles and near doubles
The workbook activities start with adding on 1, then continue to add on 2, then 3, then 4 and 5. All strategies are used, however counting on strategy based on number pattern strategy is used preferably.
The worksheets are dealing with real life addition problems;
eg. house points in a Sports Carnival, What's your score, Cookie jars, Savings, Shopping etc.
