From Counting to Chunking: Addition & Subtraction Within 20 (K-2)

Are your K-2 students struggling with the basic math operations of addition and subtraction? At the KCM, we LOVE to give educators the tools needed to guide your students to a deep understanding of the mathematics learning trajectory. Join us as we explore the power of the rekenreks and other tools to support student learning.

Previously part of the KCM Comprehensive Course for Primary Grades.


In this 2-day course, participants will:

  • develop pedagogical strategies that lead students to use counting in increasingly sophisticated ways utilizing the Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning (SEAL).
  • learn to connect the Stages of Early Arithmetical Learning to the Kentucky Academic Standards.
  • build capacity to effectively utilize manipulatives, games, and literature with K-2 students to develop chunking strategies.
  • receive materials including books, rekenreks, spinners, and other resources that promote structuring within 20.
