Number Bonds...the big picture

 Number Bonds help children make visual number relationships and promote the building of addition and subtraction fact families. Today students were invited to be part of the hula hoop model number bond 3+2.
After 3 students were in one part of the number bond and 2 in the other, they were invited to be grouped altogether and visually see what the answer is ... "5".

To be able to see what it means to add objects together (part-part-whole) brings math to a whole new level for Kindergarten students.
