When you are learning addition there are many different ways to learn it. I’ve added several math addition tools to help kids over the years. One of my favorites has been the Ways to Add Up to Up to 20!
It is a fun printable that can be used as a no-prep printable or make into a fun hands-on learning center.
You can mix it up for whatever works for your needs.
The idea of this printable is simple you figure out all the ways to add up to that number. There are spots on each page that will have all the ways you could add up to the number.
There are two types of the printable. One has gumballs in the center kids can use to help them add up to the number.
The second type has no gumballs and is blank. This allows you to turn it into a hands-on math activity for them. We used LEGOs to show the different ways we could add up to the number. You can start with all of them and slowly move one LEGOs to another group to show how it changes. You could also use unifix cubes or mini pompoms.
As I stated if they have problems just start them out with the bookmarks to help. I love having these as a fun way to see if they got the equations all right as well.
