Help your child enhance their addition mental math skills. Create a 10 by 10 grid or chart numbered from 0-9 on the side and top (vertical and horizontal axis). Have your child fill in the basic facts for addition. For example, 0+0=0, 0+1= 1, etc. Highlight the facts that your child knows fluently. You will find that they know more facts than they don’t know mentally! Make flash cards for the basic facts they need some practice with and continue to highlight the chart as they become fluent with the facts. It’s a great way to build self-efficacy and confidence in math.
