Doubles, Doubles, we can learn doubles!

We're working our doubles facts in math this week. Doubles to 5 seem to pretty solid, but doubles 6-9 are a bit tricky for us yet. Here are the visual that we use to help us remember the facts.
Double 1= eyes
Double 2= dog
Double 3= Soda bottles
Double 4= Spider legs
Double 5= hands
Double 6= egg carton
Double 7= calendar (2 weeks)
Double 8= crayon box
Double 9= Semi-truck - 18 wheeler

We even made graham cracker doubles with chocolate chips today to help us practice our facts. We took pictures as we created which we will use to help us with our doubles +1 facts as the week goes on. 

Any help that you can give your child at home to reinforce what we are learning here at school would be greatly appreciated. The larger doubles as I mentioned above, tend to be the ones that are the trickiest for us.  

Here are several games that you can download for free to play at home as well.

Doubles Slides and Ladders

Double Trouble

Race to Rudolph (Doubles)

Down the Chimney (Doubles +1)

Here's a fun Christmas themed project you can do too.
Doubles Trees (doubles and doubles +1s)

We've also played several different doubles games and watched the 2 videos below and have as well. Check them out!

Have fun!
