Maths- Doubling

Continuing with the ladybird from the previous activity, this time we are going to write a 'number sentence' to match the doubling .

Ask your child to place a certain amount of items on one side of the ladybird, then they match it with the same amount. Ask them to say the 'doubling sentence' and then the  answer.

Underneath the ladybird, write the number sentence that matches it. 

As you write it, say the number sentence i.e. 2 add 2 equals 4.

Ask your child to say the sentence that matches the double. (some children may know the symbol + as 'plus', that's ok. However, if they say 'makes' for the = symbol, try and teach them the word 'equals', as this will be more beneficial in the long run). 

Repeat with different numbers.


The main objective today is to :

practising doubling

try and write the number sentence that matches

Topic- Colour 'The day the crayons quit'

So what did you think of the story? Funny? Which crayon did you feel sorry for? Did 'peach' crayon make you laugh because he was NAKED? 

Please read/listen  to the story over and over again, as it is good for you to get to know the story- line and characters.

Today's activity is to think what would the crayons say, if they could really talk. Think about what they are moaning about and come up with a short sentence/a couple of words.

Would 'blue' crayon say " I'm too short!", would 'peach' crayon say " Im freezing!", would 'white' crayon say " Can you see me?"

Please write your caption in the speech bubble next to your coloured crayon.

Can you choose at least 3 crayons. 

When you down load the word document, the crayons/speechbubbles are moveable, so you don't have to have unnecessary ones on your page. Make them as big as you like.

Have fun with this, and we will look forward to reading 'what the crayons think and say'.
