Multi-Digit Addition Posters

Free Printable Multi-Digit Addition Posters
Helps kids understand standard algorithm from 2 digits to 6 with regrouping

If you've ever taught a kid or a class multi-digit addition before, then you know how may times you need to go over the order of solving. 
STart with the ones.
Do you need to carry or regroup?
Did you regroup without needing to?
Don't forget to rewrite your numbers!
You can start to feel a little bit like a broken record.

I made these posters, especially for my youngest daughter whom I homeschool and thought you might all appreciate them too! They go over the standard algorithm of addition showing kids how to solve step-by-step with equations using 2 to 6 digits.

All of the posters are colour-coded to help kids not lose their place when following the steps. For example, you can see in the image above that the ones column numbers are all green. The tens are orange, the hundreds red, and so on. This way they know that if they are in the hundreds column, they need to read the red sentence that describes that step.

The instructions are simple and to the point for kids who already know about regrouping (you could use my free regrouping workbook if you feel like you need some help here!)

I find this to be really helpful for kids working on their own. I will keep a copy of the poster we are using on the table next tp my daughter's work, as well as one on the wall. That way, if she forgets what she is doing or needs some guidance, she can easily refer to the poster and follow along.
