Fact Families

Today I introduced Turbo to Fact Families. Easy concept, sometimes hard to teach. I FINALLY FOUND A USE FOR ANGRY BIRDS!

I assigned each bird/pig a number. Using the lingo, I taught fact families:

Hi my name is 8.
Hi my name is 4 and my name is 12.
We are a fact family.
We can do 4 things together.
8+4=12, 4+8=12, 12-4=8, 12-8=4.

At first, it was difficult, but near the end, Turbo totally got it.

Tank, focused on reading and identifying his colors. He doesn't "speak" English yet...still gibberish/Chinese/Latin/Greek - but he knows his colors...Odd man..
