Counting Task Cards
The cards are on PowerPoint Slides and as PDF activity worksheets which you can print off and laminate. Students count the counters or dots and write down how many they see.
You can do this activity as a whole class. Play the PowerPoint Presentation and students can either say how many counters they see or write the answer on their whiteboards.
25 Addition Task Cards
The addition task cards are on PowerPoint Slides. Hand out whiteboards/dry erase pens. Show one or two slides.
Tell students that there are two blue blank boxes below the tens frame for them to write two addition sums.
Ask: How many blue counters do you see?
Ask: How many yellow counters do you see?
Now tell the students to write an addition sum using the plus and equals sign and then to show you on their whiteboards.
Ask: Does it matter which way we write the addition sum? And would it change the answer?
You can print out the task cards as they are also saved as PDFs and laminate for students to practice write addition sums two ways.
Other suggested uses
Learning about doubles.
Select some of the addition cards including those with the same amount colours on each card, i.e. 1 + 1; 2 + 2; 3 + 3; 4 + 4; 5 + 5.
Ask children what they notice about the number of counters? Same number repeated twice, 3 + 3.
Say 2 + 2 = 4 is the same as saying double 2 is 4
3 + 3 = 6 is the same as saying double 3 is 6
All the task cards are on PowerPoint, so you can change the color of the counters and print off.
