Addition for kindergarten

These cards are very simple to use. And once they are laminated you can use them over and over to practice adding….which is much better than using a worksheet over and over.

The first step is to have the children count up the yellow butterflies, and then write that number in the first square.


Spring addition worksheets

Next, the children will count the pink butterflies and write that number in the second box. Finally, it is time to add. Once the children figure out the answer they write that number in the last box.


Butterfly Math

After counting up each set of butterflies, children may struggle to figure out what the answer is. In this case, you can show them two different ways of adding.

One easy and simple way is to explain to the child that adding is finding the sum. It is figuring out how many objects there are altogether.

Using that language while explaining to a little one that they simply have to count up all the butterflies is a wonderful way to build background knowledge. With that background knowledge, they will be more successful when it comes time for word problems.

Kindergarten Addition

These task cards don’t have a ton of butterflies, so counting each one isn’t a bid deal. But as numbers get larger, you don’t want a child to only be able to count all the objects to figure out the answer.

Counting on is a great strategy…..and it will help them with subtraction too!!

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Ask them how many yellow butterflies there are. If they can’t remember, point to the first number they wrote down.
  2. Next, ask them what number comes after the number you just pointed to. (Example: If there are three yellow butterflies, the next number is four.)
  3. Finally, begin counting the pink butterflies starting with that number.

Enjoy some springtime, and getting some extra adding practice.
