At first, when children are learning the addition facts, they're making a big step . They're not just naming or counting numbers now, they're combining the terms to learn new numbers and they are learning the principle of equality.
They're learning to say the names of the symbols in the equations. They need to be able to say, "Two and two are four." instead of, "That's a two." or "one, two, three, four, etc." It takes a bit of practice to make this easy. Addition is fast counting and kids like to learn the short cut.
The sooner that your students find the time to really practice or review the basic equations, the easier it will be for them to learn addition.
Have patience teaching early addition. This, in my experience, was the hardest table to teach. After kids are used to the equations, it is usually MUCH easier for them to learn subtraction since the same terms and numbers are involved. The following is a glimpse of what I have done to make the learning more effective.
On one of the next pages you'll find our printable addition flash cards, a reference chart and twelve printable Math worksheets. Simply print them for the children to copy the equations. The addition Math reference chart is handy for kids to keep in a binder or to hang near where your students do their homework.
I have notes on both the addition and the subtraction pages for what has worked for me.
Keeping the addition Math review short and sweet makes the next review seem more easy. Kids do not dread the effort. I've spent years helping children memorize their facts, and have found that writing the equations while saying them out loud is so helpful.
Keep it light and quick and the habit will be easier to form. Seriously, the only "work" involved here is the copying and thinking. No guessing and no giant grading project necessary for you.
