Double digit addition with regrouping is another tricky concept for children to learn and understand.
We all want our students to master their multiplication facts. Quick recall is important and we know that fact fluency builds so much confidence in our young learners.
Editable word work activities are a huge time saver. It’s so easy to create a range of literacy centers, sight word practice activities, even homework sheets – all with the words you need for your kids. Type in the words you want once to generate them on each activity sheet or game.
Number fact fluency is important to develop in first and second grade. Without automatic recall it’s hard to move on to more complex skills. It’s also crucial in developing a child’s confidence in using mathematics. Without a doubt, kids need to know their addition strategies!
