    Hi! These look great and so easy to digest! Could there be a version of these posters for adding & subtracting where the “ones” is called “units”? Or just an editable version to call the strategies by different terms such as “partitioning” instead of “splitting”? I’d also love to be able to change some of the sums to not go up into the 100s for my year group.
