• What are doubles facts? (Allow the students to answer.)

Main:

Say:

• Doubles facts are addition facts where a number is added to itself.  This means that if you have the number 2, you would add it to 2 again to get 2 + 2.  What is the answer?  (Allow the students to answer.)
• Learning doubles facts helps you to get better at doing math in your head.
• Once you know your doubles facts, you can easily figure out doubles plus one or plus two.
• Did you know that there is a pattern with doubles addition facts?  1+1= 2, 2+2=4, 3+3=6, 4+4=8 (write these on the board).  Does anyone see the pattern?
• The answers to all of the doubles facts are even numbers, so you can skip count by 2’s to get the answers.
• You are now going to do a worksheet with addition doubles facts.  Do your best to answer using your memory and not your fingers or number line.  When you are done, we will go over all of the answers.
• Does anyone have any questions?

Feedback:

Say:

• Who would like to share your answers?  (Allow the students to share.)
