Fact practice daily is highly beneficial for the children. There are several addition fact strategies that you can use to help your student at home.
1. Zero Property When adding zero to a number, it does not change the value. There are 19 zero facts. (a+0)=a and (0+a)=a
0+0 0+1 0+2 0+3 0+4 0+5 0+6 0+7 0+8 0+9 1+0 2+0 3+0 4+0 5+0 6+0 7+0 8+0 9+0
2. Doubles Doubles occur everywhere in life. For example: an egg carton is 6 + 6 =12 Most people have 5 fingers on each hand 5=5=10 Two weeks 7+7=14 Box of 16 crayons, 2 rows of 8 8+8=16 Insect has 3 legs on each side 3+3=6 Octopus has 4 legs on each side 4+4=8 octo means 8
3. Doubles +1  There are 18 facts. 0+1 1+0 1+2 2+1 2+3 3+2 3+4 4+3 4+5 5+4 5+6 6+5 6+7 7+6 7+8 8+7 8+9 9+8 Double the smaller addend and counton one more. For example 6+7 double 6, 6+6=12 +1+13 so 6+7=13
4. Doubles +2 there are 16 facts. 0+2 2+0 1+3 3+1 2+4 4+2 3+5 5+3 4+6 6+4 5+7 7+5 6+8 8+6 7+9 9+7 When numbers are 2 apart, take the number in the middle and double it. For example: 5+7, the number in the middle is 6, double it 6+6=12 so 5+7=12
5. Counting OnThere are 43 countingon facts. Adding 1  Adding one means saying the larger number, then jumping up one number, or counting up one number. Example : 7 + 1 = say 7 then 8 Adding 2  Adding Two  Adding two means saying the larger number, then jumping up or counting up twice. Example: 8 + 2 = say 8 then 9 then 10 Adding 3  Adding three means saying the larger number, then jumping up or counting up three times. Example: 9 + 3 = say 9 then 10 then 11 then 12
6. Commutative Property  The answer will be the same regardless of the order you add the two numbers. 3 + 2 = 5 and 2 + 3 = 5 Order doesnt matter. This is also known as the turnaround facts.
7. Complements of Ten Ten is a benchmark in our number system and is vital in working with numbers of all sizes. The ten frame is a powerful visual aid to introduce the complements of ten. 1+9 2+8 3+7 4+6 5+5 6+4 7+3 8+2 9+1
8. "9's Trick"  Adding 9 trick Whatever number you are adding to 9, take one less than that number and put a one in front of it. For example: 6+9, one less than 6 (or the number before it) which is 5 and put a 1 in front of it to make 15. So, 6+9=15. Also, the two digits of the sum 15, 1+5=6, the number we added to 9.
