    T4T Representations for Addition within 10

    Overview

    This resources is part of Tools4NCTeachers.

    As students learn to add/subtract within 10, they need to be exposed to a variety of representations.  This illustrated chart shows samples of kindergarten representations for addition within ten.  These representations may be incorporated into a classroom anchor chart.

    Student Representations for Addition Within 10

    Student Representations

    Description

     

    John has 3 coins.  His mom gives him 3 more.  How many coins does John have now?

    Direct Modeling

     

    • Student is physically representing the situation using objects.  Then, student counts all to determine the total amount.

     

    • The next step is for the student to using drawings to determine the total amount.

     

    Drawing - Counting All

     

    • These students are using the counting all strategy. 

     

    • The next step could be to use counting on strategies (“I see 6…7, 8, 9.”).

     

     

     

    Counting On

     

    These students demonstrate understanding of the counting on strategy.  They hold the first number (or bigger number) in their head, and count on from there.
