addition


Here is another idea that I love for math! I think math should be concrete in the beginning for kids to gain a firm foundation to build off. I got the star cut outs at my local Dollar Tree(they went with our letter s activities, too!). I laminated them and then wrote simple addition problems on them. We used beans as the manipulatives since I have a ton left over from making bean bags! But, you can use anything you have access to. Gracelyn did really well with this and I plan to do it with Ella, too.

Here is a short video of Gracelyn doing a couple math problems:
