It’s no new news that teaching only the the “standard” way to add is not sufficient in the classroom. With the way education is changing, students are expected to find multiple ways to come to answers, explain their reasoning, and show their work. How else do you teach students to add 23+57? Look no further!
Here are 3 of my favorite methods to help teach students addition!
These methods really help students understand place value and conceptually understand what they are doing when they add.
Do you have any other methods that you like to teach for addition?
