• step 4:  Count how many are in your stack now.
• You just learned that 3 plus 1 more is 4.  We say 3 plus 1 equals 4.  We write 3 + 1 = 4 .
3. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4, but count out 4 Legos.
• You just learned that 4 plus 1 more is 5.  We say 4 plus 1 equals 5.  We write 4 + 1 = 5 .
4. Try again but count out 5 blocks this time.
5. Keep experimenting.

*Day 18

2. Then you are going to practice what you know.

Day 25

1. Here’s your problem for today:  2 + 3 = 5
2. Now I want you to look at your left hand. How many fingers are on it? Five, right? Now, hold three of your fingers together with your right hand. You have two fingers free and three fingers being held. That’s two plus three equals five. Now, hold onto just two fingers. You have three fingers free and two fingers being held. That’s three plus two. So what does  3 + 2 = ?  5!  You still have five fingers! It doesn’t matter which way you hold them. So, we learned that 2 + 3 = 5  AND  3 + 2 = 5.
4. Let’s practice. Change the first ten to a 2. Change the second ten to a 3. Do ten problems.
5. Play musical memory. Press “okay” to start.

Day 26

4. Let’s practice. Change the first ten to a three. Change the second ten to a three. Do ten problems.

Day 27

1. Get out six coins (or you could use something else). Put them all together in a pile. That’s 6 + 0. Six coins plus no more coins. Move one coin off all by itself. That’s 5 coins plus 1 coin. You still have six coins, right? 5 + 1 = 6. And, if you look at it the other way it’s 1 + 5 = 6. Now move another coin to be with the one coin. Now you have a pile of 4 coins and a pile of 2 coins. That’s 4 + 2 = 6. Move one more coin so they both have three coins. That’s 3 + 3 = 6. Do you see how there is always the same number of coins? The answer is always 6. But there are lots of ways to get that answer because you can move the coins into different combinations.
2. Now here’s your math problem to learn today. I want you to remember that 2 + 4 = 6. That means that 4 + 2 = 6 too! 2 + 4 = 6 and 4 + 2 = 6.  Say it out loud, “Two plus four equals six. Four plus two equals six.”
4. Let’s practice. Change the first ten to a 2. Change the second ten to a 4. Do fifteen problems.

2. Sort them into groups: all pennies into one group, all quarters into one group (or whatever currency you are using).
3. Line them up into rows. (These are not American coins.) 4. Now count up how many are in each group and write it down. For example: write “penny” or draw a penny and write “4” if you have four pennies. Do that for each row, for each type of coin.
5. Now take the paper over to where you have Legos or some kind of block.
6. Make a tower for each type of coin. Get red Legos, and if you have 4 pennies, then build a tower with 4 red Legos.
7. Do that for each coin. Use a different colored Lego for each tower.
8. Here’s another example. If you have 6 nickels, then take 6 blue Legos and build a tower.
9. When you have all of your towers, line them up next to each other. This is a bar graph.
10. 11. Save your paper. You are going to keep working on your towers and make more bar graphs.

Day 107

1. Get out your paper from yesterday.
2. Build your towers again using this online tool. Just like yesterday, if you had 4 pennies, then you will make a tower of four blocks. Each tower must be different. Use a different color or a different shape for each tower.  You can delete all of the zeros in the side numbers. If you had four blocks in a tower, then you will make your picture go up to four in that color.
3. This is just an example. Your graph will look different because you have a different number of coins.
4. When you are finished making your towers, explain to someone what each tower means. For example, you will show them your tower with four blocks and tell them that means you had 4 pennies. Tell them it is a bar graph.
5. Play this addition game. Click on practice facts 1-5.

Day 108*

1. Get out your paper again.
2. *Now I want you to draw towers for each of your piles. You can use special paper called graph paper that has boxes all in rows and columns. Print out the graph page for Day 108.
3. If you have 4 pennies, then in the first column you will color in four blocks. Then you can turn the paper sideways and write penny next to the column. Make sure you use a different color for each coin.
4. In the space on the left, you can turn the paper sideways and write “Coin Count.”
5. Play this addition game. Click on practice facts 1-5.

Day 109*

1. *Print out the Day 109 bar graph worksheet. Color in the right number of blocks for each kind of fruit. If there are none of a certain kind, color in zero blocks. You can click on the link to check your graph when you are finished. Answers
2. Play this addition game. Click on practice facts 1-5.

Day 110

1. Choose a game from Math 1 – Addition.
2. Play musical memory. Press “okay” to start.

Day 111*

1. Play with this pie chart or pie graph. We built bar graphs before to show how much we had of different things. We can use fractions and pie graphs to show how much as well. (Note:  25% is 1/4,  50% is 1/2,  33% is 1/3)
2. *We’re going to make a pie chart to show how many bugs there are of each type. Color in a slice of pie for each bug of that color. Answers

Subtraction

Day 116

1. Get out 5 blocks or coins or something, all the same. I’m going to use blocks.
2. You have 5 blocks. Lay them down. Pick up one in your hand. How many are laying there now? 4, of course!
3. There are 4 down and 1 in your hand. 4 + 1 = 5.  You knew that. Now we are seeing that five take away one is four. In math we say: five minus one equals four  or  5 – 1 = 4
4. This is called subtraction.
5. Write that big word on the top of a piece of paper and write underneath it 5 – 1 = 4
6. Now play with your blocks. If you take away 2, how many are left? If you take away 5, how many are left?

Day 117

1. Get out ten blocks (or whatever).
2. Lay five blocks out together.
3. Add on one block. 5 + 1 = 6  Say it out loud, “Five plus one equals six.”

5. Add another block.  7 + 1 = 8
6. Add another block.  8 + 1 = 9
7. Add another block.  9 + 1 = 10
8. Now take away a block.  10 – 1 = 9  Say it out loud, “Ten minus one equals nine.”
9. Take away another block.  9 – 1 = 8  Continue to say each problem out loud.
10. Continue until you have no blocks.

Day 118*

1. If you had 100 blocks, and I took all 100 away, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  zero)
2. If you had 1 million blocks, and I took away 1 million blocks, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  zero)
3. If you had one block, and you gave me one block, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  zero)
4. If you had five blocks, and you didn’t give me any, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  you would still have five blocks)
5. If you had nine blocks, and you gave me zero blocks, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  nine)
6. If you have seven blocks, and I took from you zero blocks, how many blocks would you have?  (answer:  seven)
7. *Fill in the subtracting zero and one worksheet for Day 118. Answers

2. Feeling good about starting to subtract?

Day 120

1. Pop the balloons to count off the ones you are subtracting off.
2. Choose a game from Math 1 – Addition.

Subtraction Introduction (continued) and Fraction Review

Day 121

1. When we subtract, we take away from what we already have. If you have 5 and take 0 away, you still have 5. If you have 5 and take 1 away, you have four. That’s 5 minus 1 equals 4.   5 – 1  = 4  Subtraction is the opposite of addition. If you have four and add back on one, then you have five.  These facts are all relatives:  1 + 4 = 5 ,  4 + 1 = 5 ,  5 – 1 = 4, 5 – 4 = 1   Whenever you see a subtraction problem with the two numbers right next to each other on the number line (like 5 and 4  or  6 and 7  or  8 and 9) then the answer will be one. If you have nine candies and I take eight, then you will only have one left. If I take all nine away, you will have zero.
2. This game has missing numbers. It might ask  4 + __ = 5   In this game you will have to think, “What plus 4 equals 5?” The answer is 1.   1 + 4 = 5   This is practice for subtraction.
3. Choose a game from Math 1 – Addition.

Day 122*

1. Remember, if you take away 5 from 5, you have nothing, 0. If you take 4 away from 5, you still have 1 left.  5 – 4 = 1
2. *Do the Day 122 subtraction worksheet. Answers
3. Do you remember how to build fractions?  The bottom number tells you how many pieces to divide the shape into. The top number tells you how many parts are filled in.

Day 123*

1. Choose a game from Math 1 – Addition.
2. Here’s a new problem: 5 – 3 = 2 ,   5 – 2 = 3     These are related to: 2 + 3 = 5 ,   3 + 2 = 5
3. *Do the Day 123 subtraction worksheetAnswers

Day 124

1. Play this fraction golf game.  Remember that the bottom number tells how many parts the circle is divided into, and the top part tells you how many of the parts should be colored in. Follow the directions on the screen to get a hole in one!
2. Play this subtraction game.  Pop the balloons to count down.

Day 125

Day 131*

1. *Let’s fill in some fact families. Fact Families.
2. In one triangle of circles, write 5 in the “whole” circle. In the bottom two circles write 2 and 3. Now explain how they are a family. The numbers 2 and 3 are two parts of the whole. If you put them together, they make the whole. 2 + 3 = 5 and 3 + 2 = 5. If you start with the whole, and take away one of the parts, you have the other part left over. 5 – 2 = 3 and 5 – 3 = 2. 3. Now do the same thing with another triangle of circles. This time fill it in for the 2, 4, 6 family. Explain how they are a fact family.
• Parent note: The answer key has a couple of differences from what I ended up having the kids fill in. Most of the facts are there the same, though.

awesome!! I had been looking for simple to use, yet effective curriculum for my son. This is the kind of stuff I want to do. But I’m thinking he might be more Kindergarten level. He is 6. But maybe he’ll surprise me. Thank you for all your work into this and for making it available!!!

• The King Will Make a Way August 7, 2012 / 3:58 am

You are welcome. How is his reading? Use his reading level to decide if he should do kindergarten or 1st.
