I don’t know about you, but I am so glad that Spring is here! One of my favorite parts about this time of the year is incorporating elements of it into worksheets and activities.
Early learners in kindergarten and first grade are introduced to and practice new addition facts for most of the school year. Students learn these new facts for mastery and to strengthen their ability to instantly recall math facts.
But why is this so important? For students to grow and develop as mathematicians, they must first master basic facts. Learning these facts will create fluency and set the foundation for high level thinking that is needed for subtraction, multiplication and even division.
There are so many different activities and ways for students to practice addition fluency, but I have found that many students love to do so through color by number activities. Plus, activities such as this are also perfect for hand-eye coordination as well as fine motor skills.
Little hands won’t realize how much they are actually learning while they work their way through a color by number activity. Try it out in your classroom this Spring by clicking here. Students will use instant recall to work their way through this adorable frog coloring page FREEBIE.
Happy Students and Happy Teacher.
Students will be engaged while coloring addition facts by code (Spring style). I love to use this addition activities during small groups, math centers and even enrichment time.
