Things to use with the Snowman Addition Matching Puzzles
I always get asked exactly what items we used with the printables. So here is a list of all the items we use with the snowman matching puzzles.
Ways to use the Snowman Addition Matching Puzzles
These puzzles are great for review or learning addition. You can use them for what works best for your needs.
You can start off by having them match the puzzles. I like to start off with just a few numbers if they are just starting out.
You can see an example of how you might set that up below. You have the numbers below and the equations above.
Here you can see what the cards look like when they are all matched.
Now if they are not ready for matching two equations, then start off with just one! The first and ends puzzles work great for matching as well! You can see how I set it up below. Super simple and easy to do. Then they are only looking for one addition equation.
You can see how nicely they fit together. I made it this way to be flexible to what your needs are and it allows kids to grow with the puzzles.
If you want to add another hands-on element to the card use unifix cubes. You can build the cubes to match the two equations. They can see a visual of how the two addition equations add up to the same amount.
