Adding Roses – Hands on Learning

The other day you saw the counting activity my youngest did with roses. Here is another way to do that activity with addition using roses. I have three girls with different learning styles. They really do learn some types of activities with hands on learning. So I changed the counting to adding with roses for my middle girl. This activity still goes with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose!.

What you need: Numbers 1 to 5 (we used foam heart shapes), addition cards, fake roses, and a vase.

Amelia would look at the addition flash cards and sort the roses to the sides of the card.

Then she would put the flowers in the vase.

She repeated this activity several times. Each time I would make sure she would say two plus three equals five.

When we finished with the addition we did some sorting by the answers. I gave her the foam valentines on the floor with numbers on them and gave her the cards mixed up.

While she sorted we went over the ideas again that 2 plus 3 equals 5 or that one plus two equals three. This was a fun way to reinforce the Math Fact Families with her.
