Are you starting a unit on addition in your classroom?
Want a fun way to show students what the equal sign means, how to join groups to make a bigger group and/or practice showing addition sentences?
This pack comes with all you need to do all 3 and allow for differentiation and enrichment for all your different learners!
Please download the preview to see the components of the pack 'in use!'
Use the manipulatives included in the pack, or make it even less 'prep' by using pattern blocks you already have in your classroom! The recording worksheets that are included work for both!
