When teaching my son maths, I decided I would create some step by step guide sheets for him to use and refer back to for help when working out his sums. This worksheet shows a method of addition with ‘carrying’. You can download it HERE.
Start by adding together the units of one i.e. 6 + 6 = 12
Write the 2 underneath the units of one. ‘Carry’ the 1 and write it underneath the units of ten. Next add the units of ten.
3 + 2 = 5
Don’t forget to add on the 1 underneath.
3 + 2 + 1 = 6
