Addition is one of the basic math skill. Work on different addition skills like addition of two numbers of one digit, of three numbers of 1 digit, with zero, of 2 digit number with a 1 digit number with/without carry, of 2 digit number with a 1 digit number with/without carry, of two numbers of 2 digit with/without carry, of three numbers of 2 digit with/without carry and much more.
During 1st grade, children will then learn addition and subtraction facts, two-digit numbers, some adding and subtracting with two-digit numbers, and some basics of measuring, time and money.
That still leaves the problem of memorizing a string of numbers, and here’s where the magic is. Teach children to skip count to the tune of a simple song. Have you ever wondered why children can learn the lyrics to songs so easily? It is because music can be used as a Mnemonic device, that is a strategy to assist with memorization. If you can associate the numbers with the sounds in a song, the children will not only learn them faster, but retain them much longer than they would memorizing them exclusively through repetition.
Never underestimate how much a visual representation of what can otherwise appear to be an abstract concept can help children learn.
