Addition is an operation in which one number is added to another number. When adding a series of numbers, there are some strategies that help simplify the addition process. One thing to remember is to group numbers to make tens. For example, when adding 2 + 7 + 8, you can add the 2 and the eight first to get ten, and then add the seven to get 17. Some teachers call these groups of numbers that add to ten, "friendly tens," since they make adding easier for the student.

It all starts here with addition! Learning addition is the first step on your way to subtraction, and makes up the foundation of all of the strategies used to teach multiplication. These math fact timed tests and multiple digit addition problems should make up the core of your strategies for teaching addition concepts, but when you are ready for alternative strategies:

- Picture Math Addition.

- Addition Flash Cards.

- Addition and Subtraction Grid Puzzle Worksheets.Practicing addition with your child is a great way to get him excited about math! Young kids who are beginning to learn addition often need to see a visual representaion of any given problem. Many kids will use their fingers and toes, but make things more fun by using counters. You can use pieces of cereal, beads, mini marshmallows or anything you would like. Kids love switching things up with large-sized counters, so bust out pillows or purses to make learning addition even more fun.

Encourage your child to work on a new math addition worksheet everyday to keep adding skills fresh. Mix things up with basic addition worksheets and more challenging exercises, and even a few addition facts worksheets to keep your child engaged with the subject.
