Double Mint Math

Hello Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful week. Mine was filled with cooking, cleaning, laughing, more cooking, some Christmas decorating, and more laughing!!  It has been great having company here all week!!  So thankful!
I finally had a minute to put together a little math lesson or two.  We will be working hard on different addition and subtraction strategies when we get back. Learning about doubles is a great strategy for kids to have in their repertoire. Knowing doubles and then doubles plus one or minus one gives them another edge with number sense, patterns, number relationships, etc.
Here's a fun way to cement those doubles facts!

Well, this was short and sweet, but more cooking and fun awaits!!! Have a great rest of the weekend!!
I'll be back soon with an updated "If You Take a Mouse to the Movies" unit!! :)
Joyfully!
Nancy

2. Hello Nancy!

I love all of your stuff. May I ask you which program you use to make your documents? Word, Illustrator, InDesign?

Thanks,
