What educators are saying

This was a very engaging and excellent resource to use as one of my math centers to have my students practice adding up to 10.
I am a special education teacher and when we are in small group this is a great activity to work with my students on math. It allows them to work on addition and subtraction and still have fun.


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.

Centers included:
Pinning Cards (pin a clothespin to the correct answer)
Addition Spin 'n' Win
Addition Spin 'n' Win war version
Leaf & Fruit Match
Match it! (a concentration/memory game)
Slap-It! (a fun variation of Slap Jack)

Printables included:
Create picture representations of addition problems
Spin 'n' Graph
Connect the addition problem to the simple number line.
Color by addition problem pages

Altogether there are 80 pages of activities to provide many opportunities to build a strong foundation for addition. (Plus 21 pages, of instructions and implementation ideas.)
