How to Help a Child with Addition

Help Them Learn the Basics

First and foremost, you need to guarantee that your child is familiar with the basics of math so they can begin adding. For example, they need to learn the numbers, know what adding is and entails, how to count comfortably, among other basic concepts.

Teach Them to Skip Count

Skip counting can be a good first step to teach your child how to add numbers. Skip counting will allow them to understand a bit more about the mental process that needs to take place in order to add. For instance, they can count in twos (2, 4, 6, 8, and so on). That's why it's imperative that they first know how to count comfortably.

Employ Tangible Objects

Adding can be challenging when you're dealing with abstract concepts. For that reason, you should make it a point to employ tangible objects that can help them understand better. For instance, give them a few oranges and ask them to count them all. Then, give them a few more and ask them to count again. This will help them add better. Just ensure they don't use their fingers to add.

Give Them Practice Opportunities

Finally, you need to ensure your child has enough practice opportunities so that they can work on and develop their math skills fully. For instance, make use of real life scenarios; the next time you start baking a pie, ask them to help you count the ingredients.
