Grab these fun addition activities for your homeschool and make learning math fun and interesting!
There are many fun and engaging addition activities that can help kids learn and practice math skills.
Use everyday objects like toys, food items, candy, or anything you have around the house to teach and practice addition. For example, get 5 candies and add 3 more to see how many there are now.
Roll two dice and add the numbers together to see what the sum is. Younger kids can use dots or numbers on the dice, while older children can use multiple dice or even ten-sided dice for more challenging addition.
Make your own flashcards or use pre-made ones to practice addition facts. Start with simple addition (e.g., 1+1, 2+2) and gradually increase the difficulty as they improve.
Many websites offer free online games that teach and reinforce addition skills. These games can be a fun and interactive way for kids to practice math.
Kids love using tablets or cell phones and there are many math apps available for smartphones and tablets. These apps are specifically designed to teach and reinforce math skills like addition, subtraction, division, and more. Some popular options include Math Bingo, Sushi Monster, and Math vs. Zombies.
We use board games to teach geography, but games like Snakes and Ladders or Chutes and Ladders can be a fun way to practice addition.
