Spring math activities for kindergarten

As kids start to learn to count, it’s important that they get lots and lots of practice. It’s also essential that you give them lots of visuals so they can begin to connect a picture of a quantity to the numeral.

On these puzzles, kids count the spots on the butterfly and match that to the correct numeral.

Spring Math

This helps kids with number recognition, one-to-one correspondence (knowing that each number counted represents exactly one object) and cardinality (how many objects are in a set).

The first set of puzzles includes the numbers 1-10, with corresponding butterfly counting pictures.

These initial counting pictures will also begin to prepare them for addition as they see the spots as two sets of dots on each butterfly wing.

So they will see four as two and two, for instance.

Once your kids are comfortable counting and are familiar with the numbers represented by each butterfly, you can move on to the addition puzzles. The goal of these puzzles is to move from counting to recognizing that two sets can be written as an addition sentence.

Each puzzle includes a picture with two butterflies, the total number of spots between the two and an addition sentence to model the picture. For example, on this puzzle, one butterfly has 4 spots and the other has one spot: The addition sentence then is 4 + 1 and the total is 5.

Kindergarten math activity

If your kids are 4 or 5 years old and just learning to count and add, they will likely still count each individual spot on the two butterflies. That’s ok! That’s developmentally appropriate, and expected.

The challenge is for them to then match the picture of two butterflies to the correct addition sentence. This may be a bit trickier for them to get, but encourage them to see each picture as two separate quantities.

So you might say, “In this picture, we see 4 spots and one spot. How would we write that using math language?”

You don’t need to use formal language such as “addition” or “plus” or “sum.” The goal is simply to see that there are multiple quantities and we can combine them using a ‘+’ symbol.
