Getting Ready

Prepping the activity took just a few minutes.

I printed the cards on cardstock to give them extra durability and ran them through the laminator to make them reusable.

Then I made one copy of the record sheet and grabbed a vis a vis marker (dry erase would work just as well!) and a pencil.

We were ready to play!

Dinosaur Addition

Middle Brother (age 6) grabbed the first card in the pile and counted the brown T-rexes on the left side of the card. Since there were four, he wrote 4 in the first circle.

Next, he counted the pterosaurs and wrote the total in the second circle.

The only piece missing from his equation was the sum so he added 4 + 4 and wrote 8 in the last circle, just after the equal sign.

He happily worked his way through the pile until he’d finished all of the cards in the stack.

Then, since he was ready for a little stretch, he recorded each equation (including the + and = symbols) on the record sheet.

It was a great way to reinforce how to write addition facts.
