St. Patrick’s Day Clover Addition Math Mat
When I think about planning ahead for centers and themed activities, I look for those that are effective, easy to prepare, and long-lasting so that I can use them year after year.
To prepare either your centers or small groups for this addition activity, simply download the free printable, print, and laminate. By laminating the math mat you can use it over and over again, year after year!
Next, you’ll want to collect some green pom poms or other fun manipulatives. If you don’t have anything green, don’t worry! Anything you have on hand will work. You could even grab a handful of cheerios and let your children build their addition equation with those instead!
Lastly, you’ll need a dry erase marker and some dice. It’s time to get started!
How to Use the Addition Math Mat
This activity is so simple and so fun! Start by rolling two dice. Or, if you don’t have two dice, then simply roll one die, twice!
