A little Math {Freebie}

The end of the year is quickly approaching. My firsties have learned lots of addition strategies this year like...using a number line, number grid, base 10 blocks, and others. We started adding 2 digit numbers, so I started teaching my students the partial sums method. It's a nifty little way in our math series to add 2 digit numbers...I feel that using a number grid to add 2 digit numbers can be a painfully long process and mistakes can easily be made. Here's a little strategy poster I made to illustrate the partial sums method. I've also made a blank one too. I'm going to laminate the blank one for re-use. You can get the posters by... 




Enjoy & Happy Mother's Day to my fantastic mom and all of the other moms out there! :)

Thanks so much for this poster. We also teach this method and having a poster to show will make it easier to understand. (And save me from writing it on the board every time!)

This is a great freebie. It's perfect timing . . . it's right where we are in math :). Glad I found you.
