Addition for Kids

Post by star-little » Thu Sep 19, 2019 4:49 pm

Addition is a basic math skills that every child needs to learn. Kids should have a solid grasp what a number is and what it represents before beginning the process of addition.

How to teach your kids addition?

Teach one-to-one correspondence. This is the idea that one object stands for the number one. For example, if you have five pennies, each penny is one, and you count up as you point to each one: one–two–three–four–five. Once children understand this, they will be able to add two groups of objects.

Teach sums concept. One plus four, three plus two and five plus zero are all was to make the sum of five.

Introduce symbols, story problems, vocabulary and addition concepts.
