Collections Exploring addition and subtraction

TLF ID R11082

This collection contains 12 digital curriculum resources from the 'Counting beetles' and 'Number trains' series. The collection includes two categories of counting strategies: counting on and back, to give students practice in counting on or back from any number up to 120; and counting using number representations. A third category - solving and making word problems - encourages students to work mathematically.
