Double Digit Addition Math Activity

LD has been visually working on double digit addition.
We put 10 mini erasers into Ziploc bags (and stapled
them shut so ED wouldn’t get into them!).

Shown here is 19 + 27. He simply lays out 19 (1 bag +9)
and 27 (2 bags +7). When he counts how many single
erasers there are he exchanges 10 singles for one bag of
10. With this and the exchange game LD seems to have
really grasped the idea of “carrying.”
