Mrs Mowl's Group

To start with today we would like you to practice counting within 20. Can you:

  • count 0 to 20
  • count back 20 to 0
  • count from 7 to 15
  • count from 9 to 18
  • count from 11 to 20

 

Use the number line below if you need to.

 

0     1     2     3     4     5     6     7     8     9    10

     11   12   13   14   15   16   17   18   19   20

Today we are going to work on addition of 2 numbers, using strategies that we have learnt in class before. Can you read the number sentence below?

 

5   +   3   =

 

It says "5 add 3 equals". Can you think of a way that you could find the answer? Tell your grown up what you think...

 

We could

  • use our fingers to show each number
  • use objects such as lego bricks, small toys, pasta to count out each number
  • draw pictures to represent each number

 

So it could look like this:

 

5   +   3   =

 

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3
Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3
Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3

So by counting altogether the fingers or buttons or tally mark I can see that:

5 + 3 = 8

Your task

 

Using any of the above strategies, can you find the answers to the following addition sentences:

 

4 + 2 =

 

3 + 6 =

 

6 + 2 =

 

5 + 4 =

 

3 + 2 =

 

2 + 5 =

 

Write the addition sentences and answers out into your exercise book smiley
