Learning Double Facts

Help students learn addition facts using the doubles strategy!  In this video, the Kids Academy teacher demonstrates the doubles strategy using colorful dice.

The teacher begins the lesson by explaining that our brains like to see patterns in math. When looking at numbers called “doubles,” students think of them as “twin” numbers. The teacher then writes out the “doubles” addition facts on the whiteboard:







The addends in the problems are the same so these are the “doubles.”

The worksheet task is to look at the die in the addition problem and then choose the matching die that solves the equation.  Using the dice is a great way for students to visualize the double. Counting the dots on each die to solve the problem is another strategy that students may use.

Once students memorize the “doubles” addition facts, then more advanced addition strategies are learned such as “doubles plus one” or “doubles plus two.”

Great for kids
Our 7 years old daughter loves reading activities and every off-line game Kids Academy offers. This is a very good app, I highly recommend it!
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
