We are starting the year with a review of 'partners of 10' and counting on strategies. We are using several strategies such as, break aparts, counting on, using a 10 frame, and making a 10.

Problem types include:

5 + ___ = 12 _____ = 6 + 7 8 + 9 + _____

___ + 4 = 9 It is important for students to learn to count on (preferably from the larger number) instead of counting all of the equation: 5+6=___ ooooo+oooooo instead, do

6/ooooo and count on from the 6.

We are working on partners and totals. In the equation 5+6=11 5 and 6 are partners and the 11 is the total. We are learning to move these 3 numbers around to create different equations. (We used to call these 'fact families'.)

We will be exploring how to create a 10 when adding and subtracting.

EX: 5+8=___ I know I can take 2 from the 5 and give it to the 8 to make it a '10'.

I have 3 left from that 5. 10 and 3 makes 13, so 5 and 8 also makes 13.
