I’ve figured out that “addition” means you use the words “plus” and “equals” in the same sentence.
You can do addition with counting too!
I’m into tattoos. I have kitten tattoos and Spider Man ones. To put them on, we have to use a wet rag and count – first to 20 and then to 10. My mom says that “twenty plus ten equals thirty.”
That sentence has both of the important words: “plus” and “equals.”
So doing tattoos is not just counting, but addition too!
So tattoos are math!
My dad doesn’t like me to have so many tattoos. He prefers I use the fun band-aids. Band-aids are okay, but you don’t have to count or add to put them on.
The more tattoos I put on, the more counting and addition practice I can get. So he should be happy I’m getting lots of tattoos!
Tattoos and counting teach other stuff also.
I’m learning “patience.” That means waiting without whining or screaming.
I don’t mind “patience” when I’m counting. Because I’m doing something fun.
Do you have a 2 year old like me, that can count? Are you teaching him or her addition too? And what kinds of tattoos do y’all have?
