Today in math we played a partner game to help us practice equal and not equal. Each group had a cup with 2 sided counters in it. They had to dump out their counters and create a number sentence with how many counters were red and yellow. They then had to compare their answer with another group to determine if the sets were equal or not equal. This was a lot of fun….and involved a lot of math. The children had to figure out the number sentence, how to write it down, figure out the answer and then determine whether the sets were equal or not equal.
Please remember to practice math facts to 18 with your child. We need to have many of these facts in our memory- they will provide a strong base for us when we get to addition and subtraction to 100.
