Early Math

DD4 has been working on addition for a while now - she grasps that you put the two piles together to create the answer but really struggled with the concept of adding on and would start from one each time (i.e for 5+4=9 you would start at 5 and add on as 6, 7, 8, 9) but today she finally got it

I found some great downloads from Lisa Morrow (free) where you have a picture of a bowl and some sums down the side. DD4 started by placing the 2 piles of counters above the bowl
then moving the whole starting pile into the bowl
then adding the remaining pile one at a time

Don't you just love it when they get it : )

That is so cute! Are the counters skittles? Good work to your dd.
