This colorful addition mat will be very useful when you are introducing early addition. It can be used as a whole class activity or as a maths center. Use it with two-sided counters or paint beans in two colours. Two levels are provided for differentiation. One with words - ‘2 and 3 is 5’. The other with symbols - ‘2+3=5’. Two mat color choices are provided.
Your kindies need to line up 10 counters in the circles on the mat.
If you are working with the class, give them a sum and they need to pull down the counters to their tens frame using two colors to represent the sum. They can hold their hands behind their backs and then at a sign, use their fingers to show you the answer.
If used In a maths center there are three sets of colored cards and a worksheet to match each. Kindies will draw a card that matches their worksheet, work it out with their counters, find the sum on the worksheet and write the answer. A great intervention activity for struggling children.
This resource contains: An addition mat
3 sets of colored cards
3 matching worksheets
Answer keys to each sheet
