Subject: Creating addion practice sheets.

Addition practice sheets are easy to make with spreadsheets such as
Microsoft Excel.

Go to cell 1A and insert =10*RAND().  Then, you can click the Decrease
decimal on the tool bar until  you have an integer.  Then copy right
to about 1I.  Then copy down all the way for a page or so.  

This will generate a bunch of random integers that will not exceed 10.
You can then insert four rows under each pair of integers and in one
of the rows, insert '_______ for an add line. Right justify so that
the add line moves all the way to the right.  You will need to copy
this right and also paste entire row in under each set of number

You will get the idea.  You can dress it up as much as you want.  

I think this will help greatly for those who need practice sheets.  

I noticed that one of my kindergarten grandchildren needed a little
practice.  So I changed the top line of his practice sheets to one's
or twos's etc. so he could learn the easy ones first. Maybe this will
help him when he starts first grade next year. 

Hope this helps.
