In this blog, a first grade teacher shows how she helps her students to understand the commutative property of addition.  She not only has them work with numbers, but incorporates the idea of balance by adding an actual balance (or scale) into the mix.

FREE This PowerPoint slide will allow your students to match up the number properties and an example. For instance: They will have one square that says COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY OF ADDITION which they would have to match with the numerical example: 3 + (-5) = -5 + 3. This game includes the Associative Properties, Commutative Properties, Identity Property, Zero Properties, and Additive Inverse Property. I used this game as an entry in my students' interactive math journal.

This mini booklet is a great resource to have on hand when teaching your kiddos about the three addition properties. Your students can explain each property, and show examples and non-examples of each as well. There are also blank pages for your students to illustrate each property using pictures (their favorite part!).This covers the Identity Property, Associative Property and Commutative Property.
