Before we started playing the game, though we went over the T-bar sums (0+11, 1+10, 2+9, etc.) We used the girls’ Littlest Pet Shop collection to help her see the sums as she worked them out.
Then we went over some simple flashcards (4 on one side, 7 on the other and so forth).
We again went over the partners as we made cards for the gameboard.
For the game, we put all the cards into a bucket. On DD’s turn she pulled out a card. She placed her marker on the number partner. So, in this case, DD pulled out an 8, so she put her marker on the next 3-spot.
