## Counting On Strategy with Number Bonds

The counting-on strategy is a method for solving addition problems in which a student starts with the larger number and counts on from there to find the sum. This method can be helpful for students who are still developing their understanding of addition because it can help them build a sense of quantity and see the relationship between numbers

This worksheet has students determine the largest number of the two numbers and count on to find the total. They are given space to represent their thinking, whether they counted in their head, used a number line, or used their fingers.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:

• Lesson warm-up
• Lesson wrap-up
• Fast finishers
• Homework assignment
• Whole-class review (via smartboard)

Expand this activity for students who are more capable by using an editable version of the worksheet to create larger numbers or more than two numbers needing to be added.

Encourage students who need additional help to use a number line to solve the problems.

To save paper, we suggest printing this 2-page worksheet double-sided.

Turn this teaching resource into a sustainable activity by printing on cardstock and slipping it into a dry-erase sleeve. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.

Additionally, project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
