Most of the children who come to me with problems with maths don't know their number bonds to 10. It's the first thing that I teach them because, along with doubling and halving and times tables, it's KEY to good mental arithmetic. Once they have learned these they find learning up to 20 and beyond REALLY EASY and subtraction becomes a breeze too.
This is a three page PDF file that includes a rhyme that I made up for some REALLY, REALLY, struggling kiddies! Some of them have a real battle remembering the facts and they get left behind and then come to me. I employ many different ways to help them remember and rhyme and song works well.
Please leave me feedback!!
