Skill 5G Addition: Adding More Than Two Numbers Adding 3 or more numbers in a column is more difficult as the child " runs out of fingers" when counting.
Therefore, students must know how to "count-on" to get the
correct answer."Counting on" is counting from the larger number and being able to add another number to it. For example, the student might make a fist and say 12 (after adding the 5 and 7), and then add 4 fingers to get 16. Find the sum. |
