- Place your left finger on the red number corresponding to the first number in the problem. Place your right finger on the blue number corresponding to the second number in the problem.
- Slide your left finger down so that it is on the same row as your left finger.
- Slide your left finger over to the same square as your right finger.
- Open your fingers to reveal the answer.
- Record the answer on the paper.

- Just use flash cards instead. Put answers on the back for the child to check to see if they have the correct answer. Have them sort the cards into piles depending on whether of not they got them correct.
