** If you don't have any dominoes, have fun making some before you play. Remember to include doubles!
Can you write a number sentence for each double you can see/have made? For e.g. 2 + 2 = 4
How do you know you have made a double?
What is a double?
**Children need to understand that a double is when you have two of the same amount or two of the same.
Show your child two number sentences, one that is a double and one that isn't for e.g. 5 + 3 = and 4 + 4 =.
Which is the double?
How do you know?
Prove it to me.
To prove, your child could use objects, toys etc to make two lots of 4 and show how they have 2 of the same amount.
