Stop stressing over how you’re going to teach your little learners addition strategies effectively! I have exactly what you need! This printable resource contains pages to help children learn and explore addition, using 8 different strategies. This helps you to introduce and explicitly teach addition, yet also provides practice opportunities to help children master and excel in addition. While the pages must be printed, this resource is relatively low prep but still exciting and challenging for children.

“After searching over the last few years for an addition strategies book that I could use with my kiddos, I failed to find a product that had options and strategies that I actually teach my kids! As a teacher who purchases products, I appreciate when I have the choice of including what I want, so hopefully I am giving you that ability as well. Enjoy!”

1. Thanks for sharing 8 strategies for kindergarten. I would love to read more like this.

2. Teaching kindergarteners is certainly not the easiest thing in the world. One of the most crucial elements of a successful kindergarten teacher is the ability to adapt. Whether we’ve been teaching for a few weeks or 30 years, we know that no two days are the same in the classroom. By demonstrating an ability to adapt our teaching strategies to suit any situation and class ability, we will find success in every lesson and allow students to reach their full potential.
