- Go to 2nd grade and work on your skills: Addition and Subtraction (1and 2 digit addition and subtraction to 100). Age Adding: Look for opportunities to practice addition combinations such as doubles, near doubles, as well as ways to make 10. Have your child add the ages of everyone in your family and/or extended family, or create a list of friends and their ages. Encourage your child to point out doubles (i.e. 4+4), near doubles (i.e. 4+5) and combinations of 10 (i.e. 4+6 or 3+7). Fact "Families": Pair up with a family member. Use your ages to create your own Fact "Family." Example: Bobby is 5 and Sally is 7. Bobby & Sally’s Fact "Family" 5 + 7 = 12 12 – 7 = 5 7 + 5 = 12 12 – 5 = 7 Missing Values Game: Make or purchase addition and subtraction flash cards. Cut 3x5 cards in half and paperclip to the flashcard to cover up one of the addends. Have your child find the missing value.
