This week the focus is on math. These mini lesson plans will help your child in the beginning stages of addition and subtraction. Children will be able to associate numbers with their corresponding quantities and begin to learn about measurements. You will also help introduce new math words such as “greater than” and “less than.” To start, play a memory game with 2 sets of cards. On 1 set draw numbers and on other set draw number quantities. Mix cards and turn face down. Take turns finding a match!
Teach your child to play the card game War. Divide the deck in half and take out face cards. Each player turns over one card. The highest card wins and takes the cards.
