If you have introduced addition at this point, it is still a new concept. Addition with sums up to 5 is the best starting point because kids can use their fingers. From there, progress to sums up to 10. This worksheet covers sums beyond 10. Students can no longer count on their fingers. This worksheet includes pictures that the kids can count. You can also use counters, beads, or any other object to help your child visualize.
Another method to try is to ‘make tens’. For example, to add 5 + 6: the student likely already knows that 5 + 5 = 10. So since 6 is 1 more than 5, the student can add 1 more to 10 to get 11.
