Addition Strategies


Our maths focus at the moment is consolidating strategies for solving addition problems.  At Level Two students are expected to be able to become fluent with a range of mental strategies for addition problems, such as commutativity ( 3+5 = 5+3) , building to and through 10, doubles, 10 facts and adding 10.  You might like to practice some of these strategies at home. 

When working with single digit equations the emphasis should be on accuracy but also speed.  It is really important that in Grade Two we know our ten facts as automatic facts.
