One Stop Shop for Teaching Addition Multiple Ways!

Calling all primary teachers! Do you teach addition (double and triple digit) to your students? Of course you do! Well I’m (hopefully) making it super easy for you. I have created multiple resources (SOME FREE), to help teach/practice/master addition for ALL your students.

That’s right…even your struggling math students will be able to understand and master addition using these methods. Forget the traditional way (well maybe don’t completely forget), but give students the opportunity to fully understand the concept of addition with and without regrouping using these methods and resources:

  1. The Base Ten Method- This method is my favorite to use for math intervention. In fact, I start by teaching this method first because it really helps with conceptual understanding.


Base Ten Resources:

Base Ten Addition Pack!

2. Partial Sum Method- This is my personal FAVORITE of the methods. It blows my mind for some reason! YES, YES, YES to whoever realized and created this way to add! I have resources for both double and triple digit addition for this method and a FREEBIE.


Partial Sum Resources:

Partial Sum Freebie

Partial Sum Triple Digit Addition Pack

Partial Sum Double Digit Addition Pack

Partial sum Double Digit Holiday Pack

(Can you tell this is my FAV??)

3. Decomposition Method- This method takes a little longer to master, but is really important to help students understand decomposing numbers. It helps with so much more in addition to addition!


Decomposition Resources:

Decomposition Addition Pack

Resources that include ALL 3 Methods:

January Multiple Methods

February Multiple Methods

As I continue to create more resources for addition, I will update this page ­čÖé

Thanks for stopping by!

January Edition: Multiple Methods to Teach Double Digit Addition

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing, and fun holiday and New Year! While I spent the majority of my time spending quality time with my family, I did manage to sneak in some time for creating more products for all you!

I’ve been so pleased at how many of you like and have implemented the use of multiple methods for teaching addition into your classroom! So, I’m trying to create more products for you all to use! Here’s a “January” (or any winter month for that matter!) pack for double digit addition. These charts are perfect to help introduce or practice each method, handouts for parents, or reference pages for your students. The practice pages are perfect for math centers, independent work, morning work, homework, sub plans, etc. And an assessment is always helpful as well!


This product includes two charts for each of the three methods (one chart for regrouping and one without regrouping), 2 practice pages for each method with answer keys, and an assessment. You can preview the entire product HERE! Enjoy!
