Developing Number Sense

Though number sense is not something that can be taught, we can provide opportunities for kids to discover connections and form meaningful mathematical understandings. One of the ways we can do this is with visual models.

A number bond is a powerful visual model that helps kids see how to compose and decompose numbers. Seeing how to break apart numbers leads to a deeper understanding of how numbers work and relate to each other. It also provides an opportunity for kids to discover patterns.

Included in this number bond game set are 24 matching cards. One card includes a number bond with either a “part” or the “whole” missing, while the matching card contains the missing value.

The cards include numbers up to 20, but you could focus only on numbers up to 10 if you have younger ones.

Also included in this number bond games online free are two equation mats:

  • one for addition equations
  • one for subtraction equations.

To get started with these materials, I suggest you print and laminate all the cards and the equation mats. Then cut out the matching cards.  Laminating them will allow kids to write on them over and over again with a dry erase marker.

Number Bonds Kindergarten

There are dozens of ways you can use these Number Bond Activities cards, but here are some suggestions to get you started.

  • First, simply use the matching cards as a matching game for kids to complete individually. This would be a super simple, low-prep math center activity, requiring little to no explanation.
  • Another idea is to let partners use them as a memory game or “go fish” game.To set up a memory game, simply lay all the cards out face down on the table. Kids then take turns flipping over 2 cards.If the cards are a match, they keep the set. Otherwise, they turn them back over and it’s their partner’s turn. Once all the matches have been found, the player with the most correct matches wins.
  • Go Fish is played the same way, except that each player starts with a hand of 5 cards, while the remaining cards are placed in a pile face down. Players then take turns asking the other for a match to one of their cards. For instance, they might ask, “Do you have a 6?” if the missing value on one of their number bonds is 6. If the partner has that card, they give it to them. Otherwise, the player draws a card from the pile and it’s their partner’s turn. Once all the matches have been found, the player with the most correct matches wins.
  • All alternative to using these as matching cards is to simply use the cards with number bonds (without the matches).

Number Bond Activities

Here are ideas for independent practice with number bonds

  • Cut out the cards and place them on a key ring. Then allow kids to work through the stack with a dry erase marker, filling in the missing value.
  • Then you can combine the answer cards with the equation mats for some hands on math.To get started, you will need something to count such as beads, base ten blocks, counting bears, candy, etc. Then give kids the answer cards to place in the top of the number bond. They can then use their counting manipulatives to break the number apart in different ways and write equations below. This is a great exercise for kids because there will always be more than one right answer, and it’s important for them to see that.

HINT: When they’ve completed the number bond and equation for a given number, ask them to find another equation. Once they’re familiar and comfortable using the mat and writing equations, ask how many different equations they can come up with.

  • You could even encourage them to move the answer card to a different part of the number bond, and see how that changes their equations.

However you decide to use this resource, I hope it opens up your kids understanding of addition and subtraction, and allows for fun, open-ended discoveries.
