Without thorough mastery of the addition facts, kids struggle as they start to tackle subtraction, word problems, and problems with bigger numbers. They use so much of their working memory on simple calculations that they have little brain space left for understanding new concepts.
This leads to solving problems more slowly, making more mistakes, and an overall lack of confidence in math.
Play with marbles or blocks or similar objects. You take some objects, and ask the child to take for himself as many as you have AND ONE more. Then it’s the child’s turn to take some, and you need to take the same amount plus one more. Reverse the game later to do ONE LESS.
The child will then find the same number (make sure there are at least two of each number) and does the same, calling its name out loud and gathering the number to himself.
The concepts of equality, more, and less
To understand the concepts of addition and subtraction with small numbers
He moves one counter from the group of 4 to the group of 9. Now, he can immediately see that 9 + 4 is equivalent to 10 + 3, so 9 + 4 must equal 13.
