Teach number bonds to 10 to set your child up for success in math!
Learning number bonds can put your child on the fast track to effortlessly adding in their heads. While first introducing the concept of adding, we often teach the manipulative forms – here are three bananas, let’s count three more, now we have six. After a solid understanding of manipulative adding, it’s time to move on to repetition and remembering those number bonds!
No more counting on fingers!
Memorizing number bonds at an early age will boost your child’s confidence when they begin to do higher level math. Imagine your child starting a math curriculum and being able to fly through all those simple math equations because they remember that the 2 and 5 go together to make 7 monsters and they didn’t even have to count on their fingers or use a number line. Learning number bonds to 10 is an extremely valuable and confidence boosting approach to teaching beginning math facts.
