*If your child does not have a specific 2nd grade math skill below, click a specific addition skill for games/activities to teach your child. If your child knows the skills, please move onto 3rd grade addition.
Use these strategies to write /solve all addition facts between 1 and 20:
The following strategies must be mastered by 3rd grade:
Know what fact families are and explain how addition and subtraction are related (example: If 10-4=6 then 6+4=10).
Understand and explain the "commutative property" (ex. 5+2=7, 2+5=7- explain that the order doesn't matter)
If you don't associate positive feelings with math don't let your child see that. I didn't develop a love for math until my first child started struggling and I began researching how to learn math. I learned what was missing from both of our understandings of the number system. Now we love math! You can too!
When you enjoy something it isn't work..it fun!
