Addition: Beginning concepts : Vertical and Horizontal Addition
This is for students learning the beginning concept of vertical and horizontal addition equations and who may struggle with writing addition sentences.
This is a center activity and teaching tool. Students write addition sentences for pictures of cookies in jars that are both horizontally placed and vertically placed. Dry erase markers work best for these mats. The mats are large, but I included a PDF with smaller versions. They will work the same way.
Students can have fun matching the pictures (of the same cookies in different positions) and writing the additions sentences, both vertically and horizontally.
A Smartboard version of the mats is included with helpful questions on the top of each page to guide you in the lesson.
24 pages of larger mats (12 vertical and 12 horizontal)
A separate file for smaller mats and smaller recording sheets and answer keys

I hope you and your students enjoy these!
