Add Ones or Tens

As primary age students advance in math skills, adding larger numbers may seem confusing. In this video, the Kids Academy teacher clearly explains addition with numbers in the ones and tens place. The teacher shows students two different strategies for solving problems.

The first strategy is taking the problem and entering the numbers in the problem into a T-chart. On the chart the ones and tens places are clearly marked. Students add the numbers, being careful to keep the numbers in the correct place.

The second strategy used to solve the addition problems is to use the T-chart again, but this time use base ten blocks to solve the problem. In the classroom, teachers can supply the students with the blocks, but in the video, the teacher draws the counters on the whiteboard and solves the problems. The teacher works through several examples so students have several opportunities for practice.

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!
Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
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.
Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
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.
