Double Digit Addition Unit and freebie!

So a few weeks ago, we had to go to a district PD regarding the Common Core Standards implementation.  We found out that 1st grade now teaches double digit with regrouping! Not only that but we need to teach adding the tens first and then the ones. Ahhh! I don't even have resources for that!...

Until now!
I spent this weekend making a double digit addition unit that focuses on using the knowleedge of place value to aid in solving the equations. I'm slowly starting to accumulate the graphics to make the units. I'm really proud because I finally have enough to start making the games a little cuter! This unit has two weeks worth of activities and lots of games. It's 56 pages in all! I also really like the worksheet with space to draw the base ten representation!  Here's a preview:

I also made this Easter game that focuses on adding multiples of ten.

Grab it at my TPT store here.

Leave me a comment if you can use either the unit or the Easter game!


  1. I'm confused - why would you add tens first?? lol

    1. Well... we were informed that math researchers found that students need to add the tens first in order to become proficient when adding double digit numbers mentally. It does make sense when you think that is actually how adults add double digits but it's still a huge shift in thinking...:)
