 Double the Number

My students become very fluent at doubling the number by first doubling the tens then the ones.  After I teach this concept they are able to do it mentally.

Half the Number
Half the number-I teach them to half the tens then half the ones.  When they are able to decompose the tens and ones it makes it easier for them.  

                                                            Multiply by 5
Multiply by 10-Multiply by 10 then half it.  When my students are good at halving numbers they can do this!!
