To work with your child on concepts taught in this unit and in previous units, try these interesting and rewarding activities.
1) Count and pair objects found around the house and determine whether there is an ODD or EVEN number of items.
2) Using the same collection of objects, arrange them to make an ongoing pattern. Then have your child make and describe his or her own pattern.
3) Using the number grid, select a number and have your child point to the number that is 1 more or 1 less than the selected number. Or do problems like this:
“Start at 28. Count back (or up) 5 spaces. On which number do you land?”
Good luck and Have fun with Math!
