Number Bonds: Our district does not use Singapore Math, but the concept of Number Bonds does address the new common core for math.
Each student has a set of these (numbers 3-10 each number ring is a different color). Students use these to show all the different ways they can make 6. (0 +6=6: 1 +5= 6 etc.) I love how this is hands on and it is great for the visual learner. I also like how you can flip the ring over and you can see the turn around fact. This has been a great resource so far for my 2nd graders.
2 + 4= 6
4 + 2= 6
