Color by Code Addition Sheets
Big Brother (age 7) has his addition facts down pat, so he was excited for a little pirate-themed challenge.
Working on one problem at a time, he solved the addition fact and then colored the space to match the code.
For instance, since 1 + 1 = 2, he found two on the code and colored the spot red.
Tackling one problem after the next, Big Brother worked his way through the sheet.
Then, he flipped the page over and started coloring the pirate ship using a new code. Meanwhile, I was coloring my own addition sheet!
The problems were a little more difficult – this time they reached 12 – but the process was the same. Add and color, add and color…
In conclusion, the addition activity was a fun way to practice facts – and no flashcards needed!
