will love the little teddy bears featured in this math skills
book. The youngster will be asked to sort and count the little
bears by color. Once they have mastered that, the next step
is learning how to add single-digit and then double-digit
The author takes the child (and parent) through the process
step-by-step. The key element is making the switch from putting
the set of bears together to creating a simple equation that
represents the sets. Once that is mastered then you are ready
to handle sums like 3 + 2 = 5.
Mom or Dad should look over the book a few times before sitting
down with the child to go through the process. Also, don’t
rush it. Take it slow and easy and in no time at all your
youngster will be doing simple sums.
The little teddies make the whole task fun and non-threatening.
You might even consider eventually using gummy bears to replace
the teddies featured in the book. Do the math correctly and
then you can eat the total!
