Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 3 pages | Years: P - 1

A set of three working mats to explore simple addition.

Use this teaching resource during numeracy group activities to practise addition skills.

How to use this resource:

  • Print the resource on A3 size paper as this will allow a larger working area. As these mats are designed for repeated use, place each mat inside a wipe-off pouch.
  • Students place concrete objects (such as connecting cubes, beans, counters etc) on top of the images of the addends and calculate the total. They then write/draw the total on the last image. The numbers of the equation are then transcribed below.
