Knowing basic math operations is a crucial skill that can help anyone navigate through everyday life. Still, learning how to work on these math operations effectively can be a challenging process. To help your child go through it successfully, here are some tips on how you can teach them to add.

How to Help a Child with Addition

Understand the Basics

Before your child can start adding, they need to understand the math basics. They should know numbers and how to count comfortably and correctly. Moreover, it's a good idea to spend some time explaining what adding is and why they need to learn it.

Try With Skip Counting

A good way to introduce your child to the idea and the processes behind adding numbers is to skip count. For example, you can have them practice skip counting in threes (3, 6, 9, etc.), so they can feel more comfortable with the idea of adding.

Use Tangible Objects

Learning to add can be more challenging when working with imaginary numbers or concepts. To change that, give your child a number of oranges, have them count them, then add a few more, and have them count again. This will help them undertand additions. Just keep them from using their fingers.

Help Them Practice Often

Lastly, you should help your child practice often. The more your child practices, the more they will become comfortable with adding and the better they will do it. They can help you pay your bills, or you can give them practice sheets to work on.
