These farm-themed write and wipe cards are such a motivating way to teach kids how to write and solve addition problems! With just a few minutes of quick prep, you’ll have a math center kids choose to practice again and again.
To prep the activity, I printed the cards (below) on cardstock to give them extra durability and cut along the lines to separate the pieces.
Then I slid the cards through the laminator so they could easily be wiped clean for reuse later.
I grabbed our Vis-a-vis markers, printed the record sheet on regular copy paper, and invited Big Brother (age 6.5) to join me.
Since Big Brother had used our pack of addition write and wipe cards before, he knew just what to do. He picked up a card from the pile and used the picture clues to write in the missing addends:
2 + 2 = 4
Solving one card after another, he worked his way through the stack.
During this first round, Big Brother was getting practice identifying the missing numbers without worrying about using the math symbols correctly.
He was ready for a challenge though so I gave him the record sheet and asked him to write each problem completely on his own – addends, sums AND symbols.
It was such a simple way to take his learning one step further.
