Learning About Numbers With Math Games And Activities

SIMPLE ADDITION ACTIVITIES FOR KINDERGARTEN

ASKING STUDENTS TO PRACTICE MATH FACTS LIKE ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION IS AN IMPORTANT STEP IN ANALYZING DATA AND FINDING OUT INFORMATION. STUDENTS CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:

  • Is 5 more or less than 11?
  • If I have 3 goldfish and get 2 more goldfish. How many do I have all together?
  • I have 5 goldfish and gave 4 to my friend. How many do I have left?

If you are using these activities in a classroom, start with introducing these activities as a whole group. Afterwards you can follow up with small groups or individually.

To prep: Print and laminate the hundreds chart for durability. Create a spinner using the paper fastener and the paper clip. If you do not have a paper fastener, you can hold the sharpened tip of a pencil to the middle of the spinner with the paper clip instead.

How to use the hundreds chart addition activities:

To use the interactive hundreds chart, simply start at “1”. Spin the spinner and add that number to the “1”.

1+2=3

Put fish on the number of spaces on the free printable hundreds chart to equal the product. Then, continue from there.

3 (answer from the last problem) +5=8 (We add five more fish to the hundreds chart printable to check our work.)

Continue until you reach 100.

This math addition activity for kindergarten is great because it allows the kids to practice adding different numbers. Some with regrouping and some without. With the randomness of spinning, the kids will come up with different addition problems every time.

The kindergarten hundreds chart also gives instant feedback on whether the answer was correct or not. By adding the number of fish to the hundreds chart after each spin the kids can see right away what the correct answer should be.

Children can also do the activity placing fish only on the answers to each problem.

For additional reinforcement, you can have the kids write out the addition problems that they solve in a notebook. This will help you see if there are any issues that need practice. It’s also great for accountability if you child likes to fake their way through assignments… (not that I would know anything about that!)

Plus, writing things down provides another way for kids to engage their minds and will help them to remember them more than simply reciting an answer.

When using the free printable hundred number chart they can sneak the goldfish as a snack while playing (two birds with one stone, am I right?).

Other Ways To Use The Penguin Addition Activities:

Colored Fish

Try using the multi-colored goldfish crackers to show children different color patterns on the hundreds chart.

Number Identification

Instead of using the spinner call out a random number and see if your child can place their goldish on the number given.

Number Puzzle

For a challenge, cut out strips of the hundred chart and have children piece them together like a puzzle.
