## Keep Math Fun!

**Sorting **

· Sort household objects – laundry, toys, coins.

· Use a bag of Skittles, M&Ms or Reese’s candy and sort by colors. Graph the results of the colors. Which color has the most? The least? Are there any colors that have the same amount?

**Patterns (ABAB, ABCABC, AABAAB, ABBABB, etc.) **

· Use household objects to create patterns – coins, forks, spoons, rocks, beans, buttons, leaves, sticks, keys, noodles, etc.

· Use Skittles, M&Ms or Reese’s candy to make different patterns.

· Create a pattern and let your child complete the next two or three parts.

**Ordering/Positions **

· Line up five (up to 10) toys on the floor. Identify first, second, third, fourth, and fifth (up to tenth).

· Use a deck of cards without the face cards and Aces. Draw 5 cards and put in order from least to greatest or greatest to least.

· Help set the table – focus on left, right, middle positions.

· Make a number line from 1 to 20. Have someone pick a number then you tell which number is before it, after it. Repeat. Have someone pick two numbers and you tell which number is between the two numbers.

· Play with a partner. Using only number cards and Aces (use as 1); take turns drawing cards from the deck of playing cards. The first person to have a row of cards Ace (1) to 10 is the winner.

**Practice Estimating and Counting **

· Count by 5’s and 10’s while skipping, jumping, jumping rope, snapping, etc.

· Count forward to 100 – by ones, fives, tens.

· Count backwards from 20, from 7, from 13, etc.

· Count steps and windows at home and wherever staying on vacations.

· Count cars on highway, etc.

· Estimate and then count the number of spoons in the house.

· Estimate and then count the number of rectangles, circles, squares, etc. in your room.

· Estimate and then count the number of doors (windows) in your house.

· Roll a die and count the number of dots. Count out that many Legos and make a stack. Then the next player goes. Who has the tallest tower?

**Addition and Subtraction **

· Make your own flash cards to practice adding and subtracting to 10, 12, 15, 18. Draw pictures to model the addition/subtraction fact.

· Using a deck of playing cards, pull two cards at a time and add or subtract them. Let the face cards be 10 and Aces be 1.

· Roll two dice. Use the numbers shown to practice adding and subtracting.
