Ideas for home
- Use small toys or cubes to act out simple addition stories. A piece of green paper and toy blocks can represent animals in a field. Take turns to tell stories such as, “Four cows are eating in the field. Five more cows join them. Now there are nine cows in the field.”
- When doing chores, use two numbers that together make no more than about 10 or 12. For example: “I put six plates in the dishwasher. You put two more plates in. How many plates is that in all?”
- Ask your child to add the amounts from two groups. For instance, once your child sorts their toys into two groups (toys with wheels and toys without wheels), ask them to find the total number of toys.
- Talking about everyday examples of addition helps your child develop number sense. E.g. if you put 5 grapes on a plate and your child puts 2 more on the plate, you can ask, “How many are there now?” and respond, “Yes, 5 add 2 is 7.”
- Have your child count out a small group of favorite objects. Tell them to add 2 more, then ask, “How many are there now?” Ask your child how they know.
