Suggestions for teaching the associative property of addition to 1st graders

Nov 10, 2013 3:19pm

Next week we are supposed to teach commutative property of addition, associative property of addition, identity property of addition, and identity property of subtraction. I'm ok with teaching the commutative property and identity properties... My question/concern is how I should teach the associative property to my first graders. Thanks. (3+2)+1=3+(2+1)
