Near Double Neighbors - An Addition Strategy

Friends, be sure to pop over to my TpT store to download a fun new math center that is FREE for today!

Students will learn about the concept of addition using the 'near doubles' strategy. Students will use known double facts (e.g. 2+2) to solve near doubles (e.g 2+3).

Students can play in a small group. There is no winner, just lots of practice and fun! 

Students take a card and identify the known double then write the answer in the house next door to show the 'near double'. Add additions have totals less than 20.

This can be recorded on their worksheet as well, if desired.

These activity can be used in a structured game rotation program, as math centers or in guided math. Once taught, it also makes a fantastic 'fast-finisher' activities for revision of key concepts

Wishing you a wonderful and happy day - thank you so much for stopping by.
