3 Addends Freebie
I saw a poster like the one on the right on pinterest. What a great visual to show the students ways to make 10. So I decided to make a poster too and then I created the 3 digit addend freebie to use with it.
My students and I did this yesterday when we were adding three numbers. I teach the students to look for two numbers that they can add up quickly, like two numbers that equal 10 or a double. On day one of this lesson, I had the kids circle the two numbers that equaled 10 in the corresponding color or the double. Some of the students were still having trouble, so I created the freebie on the left to help them. I had them color the rainbow and then they colored the numbers in each problem that made 10 with the corresponding color. Yeah! Everyone got it today! Click on the picture on the left to download this freebie. The rainbow prints a tiny bit blurry, but it is fine after they color it.
