Putting Addition Strategies into Action

Thank you, Common Core for freeing me from teaching addition and subtraction algorithms and helping me to deepen students' understanding through meaningful base 10 strategies!

A while back, I showed you all a packet of information I made to inform parents of the "new math" strategies.  I got really good feedback from parents who appreciated the information.  A few reported that they were keeping it "up on the fridge."

To follow up all of that strategy building, I have put together a packet that puts the strategies in action. Each sheet comes with a "Challenge" companion sheet for those students who are ready to tackle higher numbers.
You can grab a little FREEBIE preview from my Google Docs.
Help yourself:)

You can find the complete packet here...
or here...
If you didn't have the chance to see what my first packet was all about, you may want to check it out :)  It would be a huge help if you plan on using the practice pages.

I'd love to hear what math strategies you are using in your classroom - I am always on the lookout for great ideas.  Add a comment and I will come check out your blog!

  2. Hiya! Does the frequency of your posting depend on specific things or you create articles when you have a specific mood or you create when you have time? Waiting forward to hear from you.

    1. Hello! I just began blogging this past October, so I try to post as frequently as I can. I try to write about things I am currently working on in class because so my mind stays focused on one thing at a time! Thank you for the comment :)
