Kindergarten Addition Tutorial, Free Addition Worksheets for Kindergarten, Math Addition Activities for Children Ages 3-5

For your child to learn preschool math addition, he or she should be able to count from 0 up to 20. It's also a good idea if you have done some addition practice using practical examples with your child, maybe with some counters, buttons, sweets or other small objects to help your child to go through the lessons.

As they become more confident, drawing objects might be sufficient enough. Parents need to make sure that their child is alert and not tired before starting educational activities. Lessons should be a fun and pleasant experience for you and your child. Praise and encouragement will improve their confidence. When they become restless or lose concentration then stop. Make sure that studying is a positive experience, it will ensure that they will be back for more.

So let's discover the fun of adding numbers. In this section your child will learn:

What is "More Than"?

Encourage your child to look at the pictures and compare them first visually, and then by counting. In worksheet 1, tick the set that has more objects. In worksheet 2, draw more objects. Let your child color the pages using a sharp colored pencil, it will help to improve their concentration, eye and hand co-ordination and pencil control.

How to Add Numbers

Your child will learn new vocabulary:

Number line: 

Number Line

The number line is from 0 to 10 and can be found at the beginning, middle and the end of each worksheet page. This is to help your child to remember what the numbers look like and their sequence. Also, you can use the number line to encourage your child to "count on".

Counting on:

Use the number line to count on using a hopping motion from one number to another. The number line can go over 10 if you wish. Look at the example below: for "2 add 3 more" ask your child to put a finger or pencil on the number 2 and then hop the finger 3 times, landing on number 3, 4 and then  at 5, so the answer is 5!

How to Add Numbers Using the Number Line

We advise you not to rush and explore one number at a time, so your child will familiarize themselves with the combination of numbers and have enough time to do mental calculations.
