Finger Counting Addition helps bridge the gap between counting on the fingers and counting pictures on a worksheet! Children can do an addition problem by counting on their fingers, and then color the fingers that they see on the pictures of the hands on the worksheets. Then they count them all and write the answer.
Teachers may also wish to have the children trace their hands (or use the full size copy of hands provided,) and have the children fold the fingers down or up and count the paper hands as shown in the picture. You may wish to have the children do this in small groups together, practice counting the fingers, and then write equations as a group. Fun!
This packet contains instructions, the masters for the hands in the picture, and seven worksheets to help kids practice addition facts with sums that total no more than four and progress in difficulty up to sums that total no more than ten.
