The Process

During my first year of teaching in 2005, I realized the students in my second grade class were not grasping the concept of addition with regrouping. They had difficulty determining with what column to start and where to place the number being carried. The strategy used in the teachers' manual was too abstract and hard for them to comprehend. So, I developed my own teaching strategy to help my students solve these problems easily. I called it "The Math House Approach."
