- Read with your child/listen to your child read - library books, classroom readers
- Practice reading and writing sight words so child can read them "like popcorn"!
- Practice with five and ten frames, dot cards, dice, counters, until children have subitized (pictures in the brains of the quantities) the number bonds for the numbers 1-10
GREAT website to learn to subitize the number bonds:
As the opportunities arise:
- Have your child problem solve with small numbers in natural settings (Ex.: There are five people in our family. I have put two plates on the table. How many more do I need to put on the table so everyone has one plate? etc.)
