Eraser counting cards are so helpful when working on counting in ten frames, but they’re also great for practice with beginning addition this time of year. These Christmas addition cards add a fun, festive twist and make a great addition to your holiday activities! Print them out and grab your erasers for some addition to 10 fun!

Christmas Addition Cards
It’s always exciting to head to the Target dollar spot and see that they have new things out – it’s a teacher’s dream! When they had out their Christmas erasers a few weeks ago, I (along with teacher’s everywhere) was anxious to snatch them up to have on hand for fun math manipulatives.
I was able to grab the tree, snowman, and penguin erasers at Target. Can’t find them? Don’t worry!
Use other manipulatives like play dough (pinching small pieces is great for fine motor), beads, or even mini pom poms to play. You do not have to have the erasers to have a fun and festive math center ready to go.
Prep couldn’t be easier! Just grab the manipulatives of your choice and download and print the addition cards below! I like to laminate them so I can use them over and over again in my math centers.
How to Play
Place all the cards in a pile or small basket. Once the cards are set out with the erasers, kids pick a card, and then use the erasers to help them solve the problems. 3+2…. 3 trees plus 2 more trees equals…. 5 trees!
In a small group, this is a great time to talk about numbers, counting, one to one correspondence, making predictions (do you think 3+3 will be more than 3+2? Why?) and more.

The cards work on various addition equations up through 10, so they are perfect for Kindergarten, but the setup allows for great hands-on exploration for Pre-K as well.
