Ideas for home
- Find opportunities to count on using objects or pennies. For example, for five and three more, start by saying five and count on the rest: six, seven, eight!
- Use pennies to practice the count-on strategy. Start with a stack of pennies (for example, five) and ask your child to add more coins to make nine. Ask them to count on aloud as they add the coins.
- Notice doubles in everyday life. For example, point out double two tires on a car, double three cans in a six-pack of soda, and double nine wheels on an eighteen-wheeler truck.
- Tell stories involving doubling. For example, find a magic basket that doubles anything you put in it! Talk to your child about how they can mentally double the number of objects that go into the basket.
- Refer to times naturally and informally during everyday activities. For example, ask, "What time is it? Let's look at the clock" or "We will leave for the park at four o'clock."
- Talk about the order of the day's upcoming events with your child. Connect these events to the hours when they will take place. For example, "At eight o'clock we will go to the store; then at twelve o'clock we will have lunch. We will go to Grandma's house at one o'clock and to the movies at two o'clock." This supports your child's understanding of time.
