Reflection: Unit Planning Introduction to Addition - Section 2: Independent Practice


I purposely move this unit along at a slow pace. Addition develops a mathematical foundation that will carry Kindergartners through their entire lives. Academically, addition builds a foundation for later mathematical practices such as multiplication. In life, addition is a skill used regularly. Moving slowly and setting a solid foundation is crucial.
