This activity is better than a  math worksheets because it allows kids to manipulate and make number bonds a fun hands on activity.

Prepare the Activity:

Just print pages on cardstock (for durability) and cut out the apples (1-10) and the leaves (2 of each number).

Practice Number Bonds with this fun apple themed number bonds activity for 1st graders #1stgrade #homeschool #education #singaporemath #math #numberbonds #addition

To play, have children pick an apple. They will need to find two leaves that together make up the whole. Kids can count the dots on the leaves or on the apple if they need a little extra help.

Now have the kids try to make a number bond using different number leaves. As we completed the activity we “said the equation” as:
  • a number bond equation
  • a traditional equation __ + ___ = ___
  • a word problem (if on leaf has ___ dots and the other leaf has __ dot, there are ____ dots altogether)
