The Part, Part, Whole Board is a hands-on addition activity that your students will love!
Preparation is simple; just copy one board for each student or pair of students (you may laminate, but it’s not necessary). Use small items such as beans, bingo chips, unifix cubes, or counting bears for students to model addition problems on their boards. When I used these boards with my class, I used white beans that I spray-painted blue on one side. It was an easy and inexpensive manipulative! There is an optional recording sheet included as well if you would like to utilize it for students to write the addition problems they model. This activity also makes a great math center that you can use over and over again!
