Help students understand and master the counting on strategy for addition with our mini bundle of 4 fun hands-on math activities. Use them in centers, workshop, math groups or in your whole group lesson to ignite learning and get students excited to solve addition.
1. Spider Round
Perfect for the first introduction to counting on. Students use counters/chips to put dots on 2 sides of the spider. They are reminded that addition is the combination of 2 parts, but are encouraged to 'count on' to find the total.
2. More for Fall
Students will add 1, 2, 3 or 4 to a dice throw and find the total on their board.
3. Bat Count On
Students draw a card and determine the largest number on the domino-style pattern, to 'count-on' from to find the total.
4. Pumpkin Round
Students will add 1, 2, 3 or 4 pumpkin seeds to numerals 1-20 and record with a dry erase marker.
These 4 activities will allow you to sequence the skills needed for counting-on.
They are perfect for math centers and game-rotations, although can be easily adapted for a whole class activity.
A follow-up worksheet and cover page (for your organization of resources) is provided for each activity.
