Number sense is the ability to understand numbers, their quantity, relationships, and how they are affected by operations. Strong number sense is essential for the deep understanding of many math concepts. Parents should provide many opportunities for kids to develop their number sense.
Twelve (12) is a very common number kids can find in everyday life, for example, the 12-hour clock, and 12 months in a year. This worksheet focuses on the number 12. It shows different ways to make 12, illustrated by different arrangements of 12 square blocks: ten and two makes twelve; six 2s make 12; four 3s make 12; three 4s make 12; two 6s make 12. 12 is a superior highly composite number; it can be divided by 2, 3, 4, and 6. So, six times two makes 12; three times four makes 12; four times three makes 12; two times six makes 12. With this sheet, kids can practice counting, connect numbers, learn basic operations, link numbers to real life experiences, and develop strategies for solving complex problems. It is a great tool to promote their number sense.
