St. Patrick's Day Dab It Addition with the sums 11-18
This is a great activity to use in a math station to help children learn addition facts. Paint dabbers will be
needed. If you don’t have paint dabbers, crayons can be used. Paint dabbers are well worth buying
because kids love to use them.
The children can use the number line on each page to solve the equations if needed. They will dab all
the equations that equal the given answer/sum.
6 Sheets Included:
=11 (only dab sums of 11 any color)
=12 (only dab sums of 12 any color)
=13 (only dab sums of 13 any color)
=14 or 15 (dab sums of 14 one color & 15 another color)
=16, 17, or 18 (dab sums of16 one color, 17 one color, and 18 another color)
= 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, or 18 (use 6 different colors)
I provided 2 different sheets for sums of 14 or 15. One sheet the children use blue and red dabbers.
On the second sheet they use green and orange dabbers. I did this so all children wouldn’t need the same color paint dabbers at the same time. I also, provided 2 sheets for the sums of 16, 17, and 18 using different color paint dabbers for the same reason. The equations on these sheets are the same,
only the color of paint dabbers to use are different.
The children will use a different color dabber to dab each addend. They will dab the first addend at the
top of the box and the 2nd addend underneath the first one. They will write the sum under the equation. There are 6 of these sheets.
