    I use Everyday Math
    By klperry

    Everyday Math teaches it, think 3rd grade, and reinforces it in 4th and 5th. I used to HATE it, it does NOT teach place value, but other posters are correct, many kids do not have success with traditional algorithms. I think it's a spatial/organizing thing. Kids don't always line the numbers up right, so lattice has that built in organizing system for them to use. I don't love that it doesn't teach place value, but for many kids it works best. I find that you have to allow students to use whatever method they can to be successful. When I was in school I STRUGGLED with math, this would have helped me too!
