Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE the partial sum method? (HAHA, KIDDING!)
It’s only fitting the first method I created a resource for word problems is for partial sum 🙂
Here’s why I LOVE the partial sum method:
- It’s great for visual learners. I’m a visual learner and I love how I can easily see what I’m doing when I’m adding tens and ones.
- It’s great to use for your students that struggle in math. It’s AWESOME for intervention. Your lowest math students will succeed and feel incredible that they can succeed using this method!
- It’s so much more fun than the traditional method!

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:
- 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!

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 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
After creating multiple products to help teach addition with multiple methods for double digit numbers, I decided to start creating some for triple digits too!
This product is designed to help teach addition through the hundreds. It has resources for addition without regrouping and with regrouping.
The product includes:
-3 mini posters/anchor charts for partial sum triple digit addition
-4 printable worksheets and answer keys (2 without regrouping and 2 with regrouping)
-2 assessments and answer keys (1 without regrouping and 1 with regrouping)
-1 cut/paste sorting activity to help with partial sum of numbers
I hope you enjoy it! You can preview the entire product HERE!
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!
Recently, I posted about the partial sum method and why I love it for helping teach double digit addition. Because it’s important to continue to teach high quality content during the holiday season, I created this little pack to give students some extra practice with the partial sum method while also making it feel a “little” festive!
This would be perfect to send home during the winter break for homework and/or to use anytime in December (or January) in your classroom!
You might remember my recent post about double digit addition using the decomposition method. Well, today I’m excited to share another method you may or may not have heard of to teach addition.
This method might be the easiest to understand and master. It makes me a little jealous that I wasn’t taught methods like this when I was in elementary school. I remember carrying over the one to the tens place in regrouping, but not REALLY knowing what that meant for the longest time.
Partial sum addition really helps conceptualize the whole idea of addition. This method especially helps my struggling math students understand numbers better and improve their addition skills.
I created this pack to help introduce, teach and assess double digit addition with and without regrouping using the partial sum method. Included in this pack is: mini anchor charts/posters, a sort, 4 practice sheets and answer keys, 2 assessments (with and without regrouping) and answer keys.
PARTIAL SUM ADDITION PACK!
Let me know if you love this method as much as I do!
