Scarecrow Adding Doubles Mini Set

Sometimes one small idea becomes a bigger idea. And that is what happened with this mini free Scarecrow Adding Doubles printables. I had one request and idea and it went from there.

Someone was looking for a fun way to work on doubles that kids could enjoy working on. I love that this pack came together to meet that need. Plus gives another fun fall printable that kids can learn with.

This is also a part of scarecrow week!

There are three parts to this pack. You have the matching cards, roll & cover sheets and the hands-on math sheet. All of which work great for working on adding doubles. Plus this is a great set to add into the fall printables.

The matching cards are a crow with an adding double like 1+1 and a scarecrow card with the answer on the hat. You have adding doubles from 1 to 10. I recommend laminating these cards to help them last longer.

There are two roll and cover mats that are black and white. These are made for a one time use but can be used multiple times.

The last part is a hands-on mat for working adding doubles. It has a number line and addition equation on the mat. It also has matching numbers and crows to use with it. You can see we had this one in a sheet protector because it is one way we store the pages in a math binder.

The cards can also be used with both of the scarecrow mats. These can be no-prep mats or hands-on math. You can put the cards on a ring and have them cover the numbers as they find the equation. We used clear counters to cover the numbers.

Now don’t want to use the spinner you can use a ten sided dice. They just roll the dice, add two of the same number and then cover with unifix cubes or maybe dot the crow. These work great as math centers.
