Early math with T2

Super easy math using manipulatives. We used 3 small bowls. She counted out the buttons for each number to be added into the first 2 bowls. Then we reread the number sentence and she poured the first 2 bowls into the third bowl. Finally she would count the total bowl and read through the number sentence with the answer. She enjoyed this and carefully selected which colour buttons to use each time (very important apparently!!) and it helped her that she was manipulating the buttons rather than just looking at pictures.
