Carrying Template

Print this template and place in a plastic sleeve for children to write problems onto with a dry-erase marker to help guide them with carrying numbers.

Addition Box

Click on this link for instructions to make a box for learning addition in a very hands-on way.

Addition/Subtraction Arrows

Use these arrow boxes with the hundreds chart to help children remember how to add and subtract 8, 9, 11 & 12.

Hundreds Charts Up to 1,000

Use these hundreds charts to help children visualize relationships between numbers as they practice adding and subtracting numbers.


Use this project to wrap up a unit on addition with regrouping. You can take time to discuss city planning, read a book about different roles in a city, or assign each page to a student who already has high interest in a particular topic listed, (and thus much of the background knowledge needed to write a math question related to the topic). You can also use this to follow a Social Studies lesson on city planning, with students who are already familiar with regrouping in addition.

To add a STEAM element, have children use empty tissue boxes and recyclable/scrap materials to design a diorama. When put all together, the dioramas will create a miniature town: Additionville.
