Paper Plate Math Facts
- paper plate
You could write out a whole set of math facts on several paper plates, but we chose to work on +2.
Next, I prepped the clothespins by writing the sum of each math fact at the end of the clothespin.
With the paper plate prepped, you child will now be able to work on their math facts!
Your child will add 2 to each of the numbers around the paper pate: 2+2, 5+2, 1+2, 3+2, 0+2, 4+2 then clip the correct clothespin sum at that fact.
Thus 2+2 is 4, so the clothespin with the number four on it will be clipped by the number 2. 4+2 is six, so the clothespin with the number 6 on the end will be clipped at the number 4.
Have your child continue clipping the sums around the paper plate until they have completed each math fact.
For an element of self correction, I wrote each sum in a different color marker and then drew a small circle o the back of the paper plate.
