I am so ready for spring! The warmer weather, the spring showers, and the rainbows are some of my favorite things. My daughter absolutely loves rainbows so we have been doing as many rainbow activities as we can because they bring her so much joy. These Rainbow Addition Puzzles are perfect for practicing addition facts and are super colorful for spring.
*Pair with our Spring Centers & Activities for Pre-K/Kindergarten!
Rainbow Addition Puzzles
We will be using these as part of our morning basket activities throughout March and April. My daughter is so excited for these and she cannot wait until I switch out our basket activities. Did I mention she loves rainbows?
Getting Ready to Play
These rainbow addition puzzles are perfect for a math center in the home or classroom and are very simple to set up.
Simply print, laminate, and cut out around the whole puzzle. Then cut them down the center of the card along the dotted line so you have two pieces.
This free set includes 21 puzzles that cover sums up to 10. There are two different puzzles for each sum.
How to Play
Students will pick a puzzle of their choice and then find the corresponding puzzle piece with the sum.
Continue matching the other puzzles together until they have all been matched.
You can give students all 21 puzzles at one time and have them match them together or you can start them off with a smaller group.
This will allow your students the opportunity to master the concept of the activity without getting overwhelmed. Switch out the cards once they have completed the first set, or add in additional cards as they continue until they have completed all of the cards.
Once all of the puzzles are matched, write the full equations on a piece of paper to practice writing full addition problems.
