3 Addend Addition

Addition seems to have come easy for my firsties this year.  However, three addend addition seems to be a problem for some, so I created this math station (using these adorable ice cream graphics by Mel at Graphics From the Pond) to help provide a little extra practice.

The ice cream cones and scoops are large enough to use for whole class instruction and small enough to be perfect for a small group.  Students match the ice cream scoops to the matching cone (more than 15, equal to 15 or more than 15).  A recording sheet is included for accountability and to check for student understanding.  I have also included an "I can..." card to help build student independence.  I know I have said it before but I'm not sure what I did before I started using them!

This activity is available at my TPT store.

Tonight I will send a copy to the first 2 followers who can guess the flavor of my favorite ice cream.  Here's a hint - you can find it on one of my earlier ice cream posts.

  2. Is Mint Chocolate Chip your favorite? I JUST introduced this concept today to my first graders and it was a tad bit confusing to them! We need some extra practice for sure!
