Make it Fair
Just about every parent has heard "That's not fair! He has more than me!" This game takes advantage of every child's innate concern for fairness and helps them compare numbers and count out objects.
Before they can do addition and subtraction, children need to understand that they can increase the number of items in a group by adding items and reduce the number in the group by removing items. Luckily, they can practice doing this with actual objects.
This game allows children to practice a number of skills, including number recognition, counting out a number of objects, and number comparison.
Your child might struggle at first, but as they add or remove items, they’re beginning to learn the concepts behind addition and subtraction.
