Teaching Number in the Middle

Posted on March 15, 2015. Filed under: Uncategorized |


Strategy work is important.  Here is a great approach when teaching double plus 2 facts.  You can begin teaching these facts in first grade towards the end of the year, but really it is often a 2nd grade strategy. Some people call this Monkey in the Middle, while others just call them 2 apart facts.  I like calling it Monkey in the Middle — it is kid friendly.  The kids tend to remember it.
