Karate Belt Math GREEN BELT
We have been working on the “Doubles and Near Doubles” strategy. I am attaching the Green Belt flash cards we are using in class. The best way to approach them is to have your child sort the cards into two piles: doubles and near doubles. Focus first on learning all the doubles then gradually mix in the near doubles. You can even encourage them to explain out loud to you “since I know 5+5=10 then I know 5+6 must be one more so it’s 11”
I hope you enjoy helping your student prepare for this at home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Please use the attached documents to work on these concepts at home.
