Addition for Kindergarten
Simple addition for kindergarten
I like to get the students familiar with equations as early as possible. With puzzles like these, it helps them identify the relationship between the numbers and the items. Eventually, they will be able to make the link that adding up the two digits will give us a sum of the items. With these puzzles, it makes it super easy to introduce this concept to young kids.
Print in COLOR or BLACK & WHITE. I suggest you use card stock or laminate the pages. Then cut apart the cards carefully with scissors; I store mine in a plastic sleeve or file folder.
Addition activity for kindergarten
- Stack the puzzle cards in one pile and the mat in the center. I chose to print and laminate more than one mat (one for each pair of students) so that I can see them working individually on their addition skills.
- The kids will pick a puzzle card and read the numbers on the equation then add up the numbers (most kids will use their hands to add them up at this stage). They will be able to add the individual fish on the card to work out the sum too.
- They then look for the number sum with the matching puzzle piece and build their puzzle.
- I use play dough in this step: have the kids pretend that the balls they will make are ‘fish’ and they have to build their equation on the mat.
- You can use the mat as a stand alone and write the numbers below and have the kids building their equations with play dough that way too!
