Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
Another variation is to ask the child to draw. First make some sticks, circles, squares, or other shapes on a page, and encircle them. Make for the child a big "bubble" to draw in, and ask the child to draw either the same amount, one more, or one less. Also have your child practice writing numbers on paper.
