Doing math ~ Wordless Wednesday

Our kids are typical in that they love to colour and draw and are always making a mess, but the other night they were talking about adding numbers together. We went with it and showed them how to add numbers on paper. We taught them the rules - start at the right, how to deal with numbers that add up to more than 9 - and they were off!

They can easily add numbers that fit on their hands: 5 and less + 5 and less, but more than that and they get confused. We showed them how to draw dots on paper and count up the dots, or ask to borrow someone else's hands!

I'm going to do everything I can to nurture their love of learning.
