Concept Of Double Numbers Or Doubling

What is Double

Double Numbers or Doubling means to have the same amount again. I used many hands-on activities to introduce the concept of double numbers to my kids. I love it when my kids explore and learn with the help of materials associated. Start in a very gentle way. Start with small numbers. Show them the live examples. I always try to show live examples when I introduce a new concept. The doubling concept is straightforward to introduce. , Doubles are all around our house. Let the children explore :

  • Staps of bags, i.e., 2 and 2
  • Our ears 2+2
  • We have 2 hands 2+2
  • ice fillers 4+4

Materials Required

I used lots of hands-on material to introduce the concept of doubling for my kids:

  • I used the live available things at my homes, such as vegetables, fruits, and toys, to show doubles.
  • Building blocks are very colorful and engaging objects to introduce.
  • I used colorful wooden sticks.
  • Disposable cups to start the topic.
  • Crayons and pencil colors to make it attractive.

Doubling With Real Objects

I took the help of real fruits and veggies to introduce the concept of doubles in numbers. I try to show them 2 apples and then 2 apples more and count them using the number line concept. This way :

  • 2+2=4
  • 3+3=6
  • 4+4=8
  • 5+5=10

and so on. But for preschoolers and kindergartners, learning with the help of play and different activities, words magical.

Doubling numbers with blocks

Here I used construction or building blocks with my kid. She loves to play with it, and it encourages hand-eye coordination skills. She took the blocks and sorted them based on colors. I took them and tried to separate them based on double. I took 3 orange ones; she made a tower. Same we did with the yellow blocks. She counted and with the help of doubling concept. She was able to add and make a tower of 6 blocks, i.e., 3+3=6.
