Adding and Taking Apart Numbers to 5


Have several sets of 5 interlocking cubes, legos, or blocks with 2 different colors.  Talk about how you are holding 5 objects, but you can take them apart by color as you count the amounts in each section.  For example, 1 red block and 4 yellow blocks.  

When they have all been taken apart, you can put them back together.  Help your child(ren) discover how two different colored objects can be put together to make 5.
