Thank you for purchasing this pack! I hope you love it!
INCLUDED ARE ALL ADDITION COMBINATIONS FROM 0-10!
1. Print out as many Equation Recording Sheets as necessary (I give 1 per student working on the activity).
2. Print everything else on white cardstock. Make sure you print as many addition workmats as you need (i.e., 1 per child).
3. Laminate for durability.
4. Cut out ALL cards.
5. Gather some play-doh or 2-sided counters. Get ready for some Apple-y fun!
I use this activity as a Math center. First, a student picks an “Apple + apple” card and places it at the bottom of their workmat (i.e., 4 Red + 1 Yellow =). From this card, the child can see how many red and yellow “apples” s/he needs to gather. They then put 4 red “apples” on the red apple tree (play-doh, counters, whatever!) and 1 yellow “apple” on the yellow apple tree. After modeling the addition problem, they count all of the apples together to calculate the sum (i.e., 5). The student then finds the “5 apple bucket” card and places it on the mat, as well. Finally, s/he writes the ENTIRE equation on the recording sheet. Then, return all materials and start again and again!
My Kiddos really love this activity! They work together to model and solve addition equations all while having FUN!
