PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These gumball math puzzles are an interactive and motivating way to practice addition facts (sums to 10) and to strengthen counting on skills in order to find the sum! The addition puzzles are ideal for use at math centers, small groups, independent work, or for home-schooling. The gumball theme makes this an ideal year-round math activity!

This set includes 28 addition puzzles with sums to 10. Children start with one addend, then use the gumballs to count on to find the sum.

For differentiation, it is helpful to start students with a smaller number of puzzles until they have mastered them. I add additional puzzles as they gain confidence and understanding of the activity.

These puzzles are self-correcting. Since the puzzle pieces vary for each sum, children will be able to quickly discover if their answers are correct!

An extension activity is included: children choose 10 of the puzzles and record the addition facts on the recording sheet. Two differentiated sheets are included: one with the addition and equal symbols included and the other one without these symbols, for children to write the entire equation independently.

There are 4 puzzles on one 8.5” x 11” sheet; when cut apart, each puzzle measures 7.75” x 2.5”. Simply print on cardstock or heavy paper, laminate for durability if desired, cut apart the puzzles, and store in a Ziploc bag or envelope.

In addition to the color puzzles, blacklines are included in order to save on ink if you print them onto cardstock or construction paper and laminate for use at a center. Or, you might copy these onto construction paper so your students have a set to color and to take home to practice these skills.

When your children are more confident with their addition skills, a more challenging set of gumball addition puzzles is available as well:
