Here are some ideas to practice math skills:
- Practice breaking numbers to 10 into two parts using any manipulative found at home (cereal, blocks, coins, etc.)
- Example: Give your child 8 blocks and ask them to break it into 2 parts. They can move the blocks to show parts of 4 and 4, 2 and 6, 3 and 5, 1 and 7. Continue with other whole numbers to 10.
- Have your child write a number bond and number sentence to match ____+____=____ (part + part = whole)
- Practice solving addition and subtraction problems to 10 using objects or a drawing to solve.
- Practice counting to 20.
In kindergarten, we use objects or drawings to represent addition and subtraction problems. Below, you will find ideas of how to practice addition and subtraction with engaging, hands-on activities. Also, there are some practice word problems that you can read to your child. Have them draw a picture, fill in a number bond, and write a number sentence to match the story. You can find additional practice for this standard in the Kindergarten Math Home Learning Packet. See problem sets for lessons 13-24 and 32-38.
