We love to sneak in some fun, themed summer math to avoid summer loss.

This learning activity helps kids brains working so they don’t forget math skills during the break. This super cute, free printable, watermelon math focuses on helping preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade students practice addition within 10 with a fun, hands on activity! Simply print watermelon printables and you are ready to play and learn with this summer activity for kids.
Nothing says summer like a lazy warm day with a gentle breeze. We love to pack a picnic and head to one of our favorite parks to spend the day. We love eating summer favorite food the watermelon to cool off, keep sugars, and enjoy a healthy refreshing treat. So I decided to make a watermelon themed math activity to help them review some skills in August before jumping into the next school year…. happening far too soon. This watermelon math helps preschoolers, kindergartners, and grade 1 students practice adding numbers 1-10.
Print all the pages in color. I prefer to print on cardstock or laminate for durability. Use scissors to carefully cut out the watermelon slices and the watermelon seeds. I like to store the pieces in ziplock bag or folder for ease of use again and again. You can set out with unifix cubes, watermelon erasers, or red and green skittles (or m and m) as counters if your child could use the hands on counting help.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler, you will love this fun math activity for summer learning!
Addition within 10
Depending on the ages of your student, you can just put out a couple slices at a time or if your child is ready, you can set out all 10 slices. Students will look at a seed and add up the numbers. Then they will place the seed on the watermelon slice that displays the correct sum. Repeat until the seeds have been placed on all the correct watermelon pieces.
This is such a fun, hands on math activity to practice addition with kindergartners.
