1. Call out the numbers
on the license plate.
2.
See who can add the numbers up correctly.
What strategies were used?
(Were the
numbers added by 10's like 2 + 8; were doubles like 6 + 6 used?)
3.
Try different problems using the numbers in a license plate.
For
example, if you use the plate number L706 KKY, ask, "Using the numbers on the
plate, can you:
make
a 1 using two numbers? Yes, 7  6 = 1.
make
a 1 using three numbers? Yes, 7  (6 + 0) = 1
make
13 using 2 numbers? Yes, 7 + 6.
Adapt
the calculations necessary according to the license plates, and the child's ability.
The problem
solving and
computation going on in your child's head is very important.
It helps your child be creative with
numbers.
PS: Consider doing more fun printable
math activities.
