Product Description
These gumball math puzzles are an interactive and motivating way to practice addition facts 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! These puzzles are helpful in reinforcing fluency with addition skills (sums to 10).

This set includes 28 addition puzzles with sums to 10. Each puzzle includes two groups of objects (gumballs) to add together, two addends, and a sum. Children match the number of gumballs in each set of groups to the correct addends and sum to create the matching equation.

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 sums have different puzzle shapes, 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 is one puzzle per 8.5” x 11” page; when trimmed, the puzzles measure 7” x 10”. I like to have smaller puzzles; simple directions are included if you would like to print 2 puzzles on one sheet. These puzzles will measure approximately 4" x 6".

Simply print on cardstock or heavy paper, laminate for durability if desired, cut apart the puzzles, and store in a Ziploc bag or envelope.

Another set of gumball addition puzzles is also available, for children who need additional practice with counting on to find the sum:
