Try this with your child. They should be able to do this!
Ask them if 17, 14, 5, or 8 can be doubles. How do they know? Can they explain it to you?
Can they show you how they figure out this problem (draw a picture or use manipulatives)?
Can they write a number sentence? (example: 3+3=6 or 6=3+3)
Can they explain what doubles are?
The students made some amazing discoveries today that honestly blew my socks off! They are thinkers and are truly starting to explain the thoughts in their heads. One student connected doubles to Monopoly. When you roll doubles you get to roll again. When you don't roll doubles, you don't get to go again. BRILLIANT thinking these kids do daily! Be proud! :)
