Addition Strategies and Facts to 12

Projects: KidPix Activities

Turn Around Facts Sample In small groups have students brainstorm ways to make... (ex. 11). After they have made a list of possible math sentences, have them each choose a different sentence to illustrate using KidPix. Have them write an additional sentence to show the turnaround fact. I changed the color of my number to match the color of the corresponding picture for added visual effect. Assemble pages by number as a class book.

Doubles Sample Have students choose a number and illustrate a math sentence using the concepts of doubles. Assemble as a class book. Hide the sum with a sticky and it becomes a "lift the flap book" that tests their knowledge of doubles.
