* Subtraction with facts up to 20


** We will use these strategies to practice subtraction.   Please continue to work towards memorization of the facts as this will help in the future for two digit subtraction.

Make a ten- 13-8=?

                     13- 3-5=?

                       10-5= 5

Use a ten frame and take away.

Count back- start at the greater number and count back to the less number

Count on- start at the less number and count up to get the the greater number





* We will use these strategies to practice adding.  Please continue to work towards memorization of the facts as this will help in the future for two digit addition.

*Make a ten- Break apart an addend to to make 10 then add the addends. EX 9+4=  9+1+3 = 10+3 = 13

*Count on- Start at the greatest addend and count on to find the sum.  EX 9+4 Start at 9, count 4 more to get 13.

*Use a doubles fact- Memorize the doubles facts and use them to help you solve another problem.

*Use doubles +1- Memorize the doubles facts.  Add one.  EX. 8+7  7+7= 14 so add one more
