Every kid loves hands-on activities and these addition flower puzzles are a super fun way to practice addition this spring! They are easy to prep and can be used as a classroom math center, homeschool activity, or even a family game!
To prep this activity, I simply printed the puzzles onto cardstock and cut all of the pieces apart.
If you are hoping to use these year after year or in a classroom, I would also recommend laminating them. It is one extra step, but it really is worth it!
Addition Flower Puzzles
Using these puzzles in my first grade classroom was simple and easy! My students were shown the various puzzle pieces: the yellow centers (numbers 5-10) and the pink, orange and purple petals.
I explained that each flower had two petals of each color (a helpful hint for them to check their progress). I also explained that all they would need to do is spread the pieces out and start matching them.
Over the course of a few days, I had my students rotate through various math centers so that everyone would get a chance to try the new and exciting addition game. The children worked with a partner to match the petals to the centers and, when they thought everything was matched correctly, I came over and quickly checked their work.
I was able to sneak-in a quick addition review and my kids LOVED it!
