This week’s activities will focus on addition skills. While your child might be doing more difficult operations at school during math time, it is still important to practice basic math facts often. Committing simple addition facts to memory will benefit your child greatly as he or she performs more difficult math computations. For example, create a key by assigning a picture for each number 0-9 (1=star, 2=heart, 3=square, etc.). Write addition number sentences using pictures instead of numbers. Ask your child to use the key to solve the problems.
