Get your child to warm up their brain by singing along with this song.

 

I would like you to introduce the concept of doubling with your child.

Today we will learn about doubling in the sense that doubles occur when there are two groups/objects of equal quantities/size/value.

 

To illustrate this, help your child make a finger/hand painting on a piece of paper/baking parchment/old newspaper.  Here are some examples in the pictures below.

 

You could use paint, mud from the garden, jam, ink, felt tip ink on fingers, food dyes, ketchup, gravy browning  – anything you can think of to illustrate this point.

 

Spend some time helping your child to see that a double results in two identical pairs.
