As a warm up today, practise counting up in twos, fives and tens from various numbers within 100. Practise counting forward then try going backward for an extra challenge.
Making Arrays Part Two
Today we are going to continue with arrays as they a really important concept and it is important that your child has a solid understanding of them.
Firstly, see if your child can recall what they did yesterday. Watch the video again and practise constructing some arrays. Record the number sentences that go with them. There is an example picture below (mine contains rows of three and four but your child on needs to deal with twos, fives and tens at the moment).
The number sentences I can derive from my array are:
3+3+3+3=12 and 4+4+4=12
Note that at the moment we are only thinking of them in terms of repeated addition and not using the multiplication symbol (3x4=12).
Make some arrays of your own and record the relevant number sentences.
Once you have done that, try these reasoning and problem solving questions linked to arrays.
Don't forget to send us pictures of your work and get in touch if you need any help with anything.
