Teaching doubles addition was always something that I enjoyed! We would do a lot chanting, singing, game playing, and of course the timed math fact tests.
Our favorite song was by Harry Kindergarten Music. It always got us up and moving! We would do it each day as a math warm-up or brain break during math time. I also loved playing it randomly throughout the year as a little refresher!
Anchor charts with visuals are perfect for SO many reasons! You can read more about my anchor chart love here. to help us remember the sums were a must, too! This is a great time to have the students share all the things they can think of that come in that “double”. You could have them draw each item on a sticky note, then add that to the chart.
One of our favorite games to play in small group and work station time was always Doubles Addition Bingo. Print, cut, and throw in any little math manipulative and you are set!
