# Paper Plate Math Facts

**This Paper Plate Math Facts is super versatile and easy to put together.**

- paper plate
- clothespin
- markers

You could write out a whole set of math facts on several paper plates, but we chose to work on +2.

**I wrote +2 and then around the paper plate I wrote the numbers 0-5.**

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.
