This week we will be learning about doubling numbers up to 20. 

Remember that 'double' is two groups or a number or an amount. 

When you are practising doubling, use this sentence stem to help you 'double ____ is ____'. 

Key Questions:

Can you sort these representations in to doubles and not doubles?

How do you know they’ve been doubled?

What comes next in my table, why?

How can we show the double differently?

If double 2 is 4, what is double 20?

What is the largest double we can roll on a normal dice?
