Addition Fun!

For the past couple of weeks we have been learning addition and thanks to pinterest and all of my fave blogs I have found several games and activities to use in my classroom.  Now I want to apologize in advance for not having any true pictures from my classroom for this post...I never seem to remember my camera.  However, I wanted to share some of these ideas with all of you.

First, we began with an introduction to addition.  We watched the Basic Addition Brain Pop and created an anchor chart for word clues used with addition.

Here are the words that were part of the vocabulary listed in our curriculum.

We made an anchor chart that looked exactly like this one from The Teacher Wife:

We use Thinking Maps at our school and I made this as a type of circle map for my kiddos to find the word clues for addition.  They will just cut and glue all the word clues for addition.

We also played several different addition games from various blogs.  Here are the ones we used.  Click on the pictures to see what other great things these blogs have to offer.

Hope you all enjoy!  Please feel free to comment with other great ideas for addition!

Love the worksheet! It's a great "I do" activity to reinforce the vocabulary!

Thanks so much. This is perfect for what I need this week. I just may have to make a matching one for subtraction they have somewhere to put those words!

I actually made a subtraction sheet to match. Let me know your email and I'll send it your way!

LOL! I did too! Unfortunately I kept on forgetting to post it. Sorry girls for being so far behind. Thanks for the offer!

I used your addition word clues with my class (awesome!) and was hoping to use your subtraction word clues worksheet as well, but it keeps coming up as "error, not found". Is there anyway you could email that to me? I would also love the missing addend powerpoints you made (those are "missing" too -- ironic, huh?), but those may too big to send through our school mail. Thanks so much for sharing.

Does anyone have a subtraction version of the cut and paste they are willing to share??
