Easter is right around the corner, and my kiddos are looking forward to all the yummy candy treats that the Easter Bunny is going to bring them in their Easter baskets. Jelly beans are one of my favorite Easter candies, even though I am not much of a sweet eater. My kids always take their Easter baskets with the candy and hide them in their bedrooms so that I don’t raid them and steal the jelly beans.
Teaching children numbers early will not only help them in school, but it will also help them to like math when they are older. I started teaching my kids to learn their numbers as soon as I started teaching them their letters and reading. I would often work with manipulatives to teach them to count. One way I taught them to count was with my hands-on Easter Counting activity using an egg tray and jelly beans. They loved this activity because they could eat the jelly beans after they mastered their numbers.
Another fun activity was using plastic Easter Eggs. Using my simple Easter Egg number activity, my children would match the two halves of the eggs matching the number on one half with the number of dots on the other half. This activity helped them to recognize number patterns and groups.
The attached Addition and Subtraction Worksheets and Flashcards are the perfect companion to these other activities. The math packet includes 2 pages of addition problems, 2 pages of subtraction problems, and flashcards for numbers 1 through 10.
This math packet is designed for children in Preschool through 1st grade when they are starting to learn numbers, counting, and simple addition and subtraction. Using this with my other hands-on activities will help them learn these basic math facts while having fun. When they master these facts, you can treat them to a handful of jelly beans, too, as an early Easter treat.
