Chapter 8 - Addition and Subtract Facts to 20

NOTE TO PARENTS: 
This chapter looks as different strategies to add and subtract. These strategies are taught but not enforced. I tell students that I will teach them these strategies, but pick one that works for them (this can included just using a number line at this point). 
If your child appears confused on problems with number bonds or pictures, it is okay! Just see if he/she can at least solve the addition/subtraction problem in any way. I always tell them it does not matter how you add (or subtract), as long as you get to the correct answer!

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!

Big Idea: Different strategies can be used to add and subtract


 Vocabulary
groupa set of objects or people
samealike or equal
doubles
fact
the numbers that are added together are the same: 3+3=6
doubles
plus one
4+5 is 4+4 plus 1 more: 4+5=9
