*UPDATED!* Shake and Spill activities are a great way to introduce the basics of addition. This pack includes Shake and Spill activities for numbers 3 to 10, as well as a slightly modified version for each number (where the student can trace the final number in each sentence to practice proper number formation).
Instructions: For this activity you need two sided counters (I use the circle counters with red on one side and yellow on the other) and a cup. The kids place the specified number of counters in their cup, SHAKE it up, and SPILL it on a flat surface. They then record how many counters are red and how many are yellow, making sure to group the colours together (i.e. all the red are together, and all the yellow are together).
