Addition and subtraction is hard enough separately to master, but when your teacher wants you do to both operations and maybe even regroup...
Want to talk about frustration level?? So, on a whim, I created this anchor chart to help my students remember when to regroup and how. The first question they always ask is, Mrs. W, do we have to regroup on these problems??
I hate that question. I've been asked that question more this year than any other year! My students don't like mixed practice... I've noticed they are more "compartmentalized" this year. So, mean teacher that I am, I'm mixing it up and taking them out of their comfort zone. I mean, I have to!
Hope you can use this little chart and it helps your students. Jury's still out on whether it's helped mine.
