Once my student's have mastered 1:1 correspondence and matching quantities to numerals, I being to introduce them to the concept of addition!
I searched all over the internet and TeachersPayTeachers to find these... and they are NO WHERE! So I used my own creativity and made my own. I wanted addition flashcards with pictures to represent each number. This is a great way to introduce the concept of addition!
I introduce the concept of addition with manipulatives and these flash cards. We look at the flashcard and read, "4+10" and then we count the stickers. I made sure to use different stickers for the different numbers so that my kiddo's didn't get confused. Once we count the stickers, I ask the student to perform the addition fact with manipulatives on their own.
These were a great creation in Room 83! I printed the flashcards out, and had my aides help me add the stickers when we had a few minutes here and there. Once all done, I laminated and cut apart! These goodies are used on daily basis in my classroom! Once the students get comfortable with the concept, they transition to typical flashcards without the images!
