We have been working HARD on addition since winter and students are grasping their facts. I created a little activity for my students (French Immersion k/1) to work on independently to show me where they are at. Some finished very quickly while others took their time.

To vary the levels in this quick activity students can use a 6 sided die, 10 or even 12 to help add by 2s. Also this page could be double-sided or single sided.

To save paper this activity can be printed on card stock and laminated so that student can use a whiteboard marker or at home can use Learning Resources Write and Wipe Pockets  see! –> which offers flexibility as you just change the activity in the pouch and they can reuse the activities over and over again.

At their own pace once finished, students broke off  in pairs and played math games in partners which reinforce more adding 2s (roll, add 2, cover up the number and try to get 3 cover ups in a row!)
