Your students will have so much fun learning addition up to 10 with these 8 math centers and 4 printable activities. There is a strong emphasis on relating the one-to-one counting concept and composing numbers up to 10. All with a fun caterpillar theme!! (All drawings and representations are unique to the clip artist.)
Many of the activities in this pack can be differentiated to help introduce addition to students who do not have strong number recognition making these math centers perfect for pre-k and kindergarten. These will help to build a strong number sense while introducing addition.
The centers are divided between adding up to 5 and adding from 6-10. However, they can easily be combined by printing and using both sets.
