Kindergarten Addition!

We have been working on our addition skills!  There are many fun partner activities that I have had my students do to help strengthen their addition skills and increase their fluency.  Here are some of the activities we have done:

Addition Plates: I got these from the dollar store.  They are a great way to help students visualize addition and to have them use manipulatives to solve.  Children take turns rolling a die. They place a set of cubes for each number in the two smaller portions on the plate.  Their partner writes the number sentence.  The children solve the problem by placing both sets of cubes in the large part of the plate.

Addition Play-Doh Mats: This is great for a center or RTI!  Have children use play-doh to complete each addition mat.  You can also place each mat in a dry erase sleeve.  In the picture above, I was working with a student for RTI.  These mats help children visualize addition and solve problems on their own.  You can find these in my store: Addition and Subtraction Play-Doh Mats

Making 10: Children work with a partner and use ten frames to find out how many more they need to make 10.  They use a dry erase board to write number sentences.

Other addition activities I used came from Miss Ricca's blog.  She has many great and FREE activities that you can find here: Miss Ricca's Addition Activities .

I hope these activities help add to your addition learning in your classroom!
