The game is really simple, so students will pick it up quickly.

  1. Roll 1 dice and put the same number of objects as spots in the first wing.
  2. Roll 1 dice again and this time put the number rolled of objects on the second wing.
  3. Pre k, Kindergarten, and first grade students will now add the two numbers by counting the total number of spots on the wings.
  4. Students will record the number sentence on their free math worksheet

Addition for kindergarten

If students are playing in pairs, they can take turns throwing the dice and adding the spots. Then they can count the total together.

I recommend some instruction if your students are just starting to do addition.

  • Demonstrate how to roll the dice, count out the spots and place them on the 1st wing. Show them where to record the number on their worksheet.
  • Next ask for a volunteer to roll the dice and place the spots on the 2nd wing. Show them where to record the number on their worksheet.
  • Together count the total of spots on the wings and record the total on the worksheet.
  • Talk about how you counted the spots from both wings to get the total number on the butterfly. Look at the number sentence on the worksheet and invite the students to read it with you as you point to the numbers and symbols.

Subtraction for kindergarten

  1. Roll 2 dice and put the same number of items as the dots you rolled on the butterfly’s wings.
  2. Next roll just 1 dice and remove the number of spots rolled from the wing and set off the butter fly to the side.
  3. Count the number of spots left.
  4. Students record the number sentence in their subtraction worksheet

I am a huge fan of hands-on activities like this one to teach number sentences. I love the way the students get to experience that addition is combining groups and subtraction is removing a number from a set.
