• Lightbulb Students should use their experiences from kindergarten and first grade regarding adding and subtracting to within 20. Students should be able to add and subtract facts within 20 with automaticity or with speed and accuracy with little or no conscious effort. Students may use the strategies of doubles, doubles plus or minus 1, counting on, making a 10, hidden 10s, and the communicative property to determine these facts.
