Hands-on help

Provide counters or a number line for students to assist their addition when completing the worksheet. Encourage a developing fluency in being able to quickly add 2 to any number. Remind students that it is very close to the 'one more' fact they most likely already know.

2 more to the floor

A quick review activity for the end of your lesson can be to play a whole class game of 2 More to the Floor.

To play give every student a number card between 3 and 20. Call numbers between 1 and 18 and students must listen for the number that is 2 more than the number they are holding. Once they hear it, the 'hit the floor' (sit down). The last child/ren to remain standing may be declared the winners. It is fast pace game so play several rounds and get your students up and moving! 

2 More on the Board

Another fast-prep whole class game is 2 More on the Board. Give each student a number between 1 and 6 to remember. Roll a die in the middle of your group of students. When they see their number they 'race' to the board to write their number (their given number +2) on the board. Keep it fast, safe and fun with careful instructions and support.
