Part-Part-Whole Addition Work Mats

Print, laminate, and cut out work mats. Don’t have enough time to laminate? Slip them into a communicator or a plastic sheet protector!

Use mini marshmallows to create addition sentences. Place a small group of marshmallows in one hot chocolate mug, then write the number. Repeat for the other mug. Then students are to count all of the manipulatives and write how many in all.
There are two different versions of work mats. One that has the number sentence written in words, and the other that has the math signs “+” and “=“.

You can also use other mini manipulatives such as cotton balls, cereal, mini erasers, table scatter from the Dollar Tree, anything mini the kiddos can use to add with.
Don’t have any manipulatives in the classroom? Print out the page of mini marshmallows at the end of this pack, laminate, and cut them out and have the kids use those instead!
