As a warm up I will like you to practice your number formation 0-10 or 10-20, as this will help you with your maths task today.
Today in maths, we will be looking at addition. This week we have already looked at addition with a practical activity and your pictures were amazing.
Can you recap with your children: What is addition? What does an add sign look like? Can you show me with your arms? When we are adding will our number get bigger or smaller?
Using the resources you used last time remind the children how to add two groups together.
Count the first group, count the second group and then count them all together. You will need to model the number sentence so they know how to lay it out.
Once the children are familiar with the process it is time they start to write their own number sentences.
Ask your child to split the group of objects and write the number sentence themselves, complete this at least 3 times. If your child is struggling continue to work together, writing the number sums with support.
For example: 4 + 5 = 9
If your child is comfortable with this then try the task below.
I have attached pictures of dominos, ask your child to create a number sentence based on the domino.
For example: 5 + 3 = 8
