Addition/Subtraction Strategies

Our Addition/Subtraction lesson plan teaches students how addition and subtraction strategies work using place value and the properties of operations. Students practice these skills using provided practice problems as a part of this lesson.

Our Addition/Subtraction lesson plan helps students explain why addition and subtraction strategies work using place value and the properties of operations. At this level, most students know basic addition and subtraction facts, but our lesson teaches students the “why” behind the operations. Students will be asked to work collaboratively to solve word problems using two different strategies. Students are also asked to demonstrate their understanding completing both numerical and word problems on their own using what they learned in the lesson.

The students will be able to explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.

    This packet was amazing andhelpful especially in this time where the kids are out of school. The packet provides instructions for the teacher (or parent) so that you know how to teach the subject to your student (or child). Then they provide easy directions for each activity the child does and also great variety. Im so pleased with Clarendon Learning!
