Before you try worksheets, here are some practical ways of adding.
- Find some objects around the house for example, toy cars, stones, flower petals.
- On one side have a certain amount, for example 2 toy cars.
- On another side ‘add’ another amount, for example 3 toy cars.
- Ask your child, how many are there altogether?
- Then help them to say the number sentence:“2 and 3 makes 5 altogether” and “2 add 3 equals 5”. It is good to get used to saying it both ways.
Here are some example questions to practically complete:
