Before you try worksheets, here are some practical ways of adding.

• Find some objects around the house for example, toy cars, stones, flower petals.
• On one side have a certain amount, for example 2 toy cars.
• On another side ‘add’ another amount, for example 3 toy cars.
• Then help them to say the number sentence:2 and 3 makes 5 altogether” and “2 add 3 equals 5”. It is good to get used to saying it both ways.

Here are some example questions to practically complete:

• There are 3 chips on a plate. Mummy puts 3 more chips on my plate. How many chips are there in total?
• I have 5 teddy bears. I get 2 more teddy bears. How many do I have altogether?
• There are 4 pencils, I get 2 more. How many are there in total?
• I have 6 stones in my garden. I have found 3 more. How many do I have altogether?
• There are 2 pennies in my purse. I have found 5 more. How many pennies are there in total?
Key vocabulary to use: altogether, total, more, together, add, equals.

Count the amount of the animals together and click the numeral which matches the total of animals.
