Adding towers cards to use with the ‘slide and count’ strategy. I couldn’t resist putting in a little picture of a tower on these cards. I’ve set up the sums to lend themselves well to this strategy. The biggest addend comes first and forms the base of the tower. A smaller number is added on top. Children slide the first number and then count on. We used lots of explaining to our learning parnter and discussing the process and why it works to ensure that everyone understands.
