Learning a new strategy can be challenging for students. Some get frustrated easily and refuse to learn something new. Some students might like it and hopefully begin using the strategy. Plus the best part is, they will not be using their fingers. Subtraction might not be too stressful when using this strategy. It's easy.
Students will also need to know the combinations of 10. They should be able to calculate 7+?=10 without having to think too hard about it.
This fun, little unit has everything to practice this strategy. You can use them for math centers, small group, or as part of your lesson.
