Domino Addition Track

Have a child ready to add? Try this domino addition track!

I know my rising Kindergartener is ready to add because he is beginning to automatically recognize “groups of” numbers.

This means he sees a group of four dots and automatically recognizes it as a group of four.

I know my newly four year old is not ready because he is still understanding that the number five actually means FIVE objects.

Even when you think your child has this down, I urge you to keep at it.

Number sense and truly understanding quantity is the foundation of all future math concepts.

Do not rush to addition.

I urge you to take the time touching and counting manipulatives prior addition. The counting bears, pom poms, and magnetic tiles are great tools for this!

So now after that PSA, let’s dive in!

Fill the Line - A Measurement Game

Grab the masking tape. It’s time to get measuring!

Measurement activities are simple to create at home, and can also be very hands-on.

This means that your child is touching the materials, learning by doing, and testing out new ideas. Boom. All powerful ways to remember what we practice.

And fear not!

I am about to show you just how quick and easy hands-on learning can be for you, and how entertaining it will be for your children.

My two-year-old, my four-year-old, and my almost Kindergartener scooped and measured for a long time.

So grab the toddlers and the big kids, and let’s get started!
