Great resource!
I have put it on display in the classroom and have a few on flip rings for the kids to have beside them. But a suggestion – a strategy card for the vertical algorithm with what to do when the ones add up to greater then ten would really compliment this resource.

Hey Chris, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am glad these are providing value in your classroom. I agree, I think that adding an algorithm greater than ten would be a fantastic addition. Could I please ask that you place a resource request and that way this idea can move up the waiting line quickly when it gains votes. If there is anything else that I can assist you with please do not hesitate to contact us.
