The Puzzle Game - Math Video

The thing I like about this game is that you can get in a lot of number bonds practice in a very small amount of time. When a child is first learning the rods, there is no need to mention any number names or the word "subtraction." Just seeing the color combinations is enough. Once the child knows the number names of the rods you can start using those in your conversation as you play. Notice the many ways I talk about the number bond combinations in the video. Sometimes I say something like, "Three and what make seven?" or, "What goes with three to make seven," and sometimes I say, "Seven minus what is three?"

Don't forget to have fun! My four year old loves that she "beats me" every time we play this game! Doing this for 10 minutes per day for a week has proven great results!
