A solid foundation of basic math skills is essential for early success in math. Children who can connect their understanding of math to the world around them, and build confidence through practice, will be ready for the challenges of mathematics as they advance to more complex topics. The activities in this workbook are designed to help your children catch up, keep up, and get ahead. Best of all, they’ll have lots of fun doing it! Some of the great features you’ll find inside are:
The Cupcake Eater
Counting cupcakes on a plate, and then crossing off the eaten cupcakes and counting how many are left, helps children learn subtraction.
Determining how many people like pizza versus hamburgers, playing hockey versus soccer, or enjoying different books provides fun ways to add to and subtract from 20.
Get in Line
Using number lines to fill in missing numbers and skip count by 2, 5, and 10 reinforces number patterns.
Measuring the length of tools with square units, office supplies with paper clips, or small objects with pennies builds an understanding of nonstandard units of measurement.
Give Me a Hand
Children practice telling time in hours and half hours by drawing hour and minute hands on clocks.
