Ideas for home
- Talk about everyday subtraction situations using the language of addition.
- In the store, say, “The book costs $6, you have $4, how much more do you need to save to buy the book?”
- While traveling, say, “We are traveling ten miles to grandpa’s house, we have traveled two, how many more miles to go?”
- In the kitchen, say, “I am making a pie that needs five apples. I only have two, how many more do I need to buy?”
- Practice think addition to figure out the unknown part. “If there are 15 parking spots and eight are filled, how many more cars can park in the lot?” (8 + 7 = 15, so there is room for seven cars.)
- Highlight any equal shares when splitting portions of food into halves. Say “whole” or “total,” and “half” when dividing anything equally into two groups or parts. If one-half of the candy bar is bigger and not fair, this is an opportunity to talk about how halves are equal and fair.
- Explore one-fourth by cutting out paper shapes and folding them in half, and folding them in half again. Then unfold the paper to see how the creases delineate fourths. Remind your child that just dividing the shape into four parts does not necessarily make fourths. Fourths require the four parts of the shape be the same size.
