Interactive and Printable Preschool Math Worksheets for Addition Children Ages 3-5
Before starting on the math addition worksheets for kindergarten, you have to make sure that your child has had many practical experiences counting objects. You need to provide your child with counters, small objects such as buttons or sweets, or their fingers if nothing else is available until they build up their confidence to manage without. So let's explore further how to add numbers.
Below you will find a number line from 0 to 10 to remind your child what the numbers look like, and also to help count on using the jumping method from one number to another:
For example, for "3 add 1 more..." place on the number 3 and then jump 1 more time - the finger will land on 4, so 4 is the right answer! This is not only educational but will add a sense of fun to activities. Enjoy our preschool math worksheets!
In this task your child needs to work out how many more circles are in one line, when compared to the other line. Print out the worksheet and use felt-tip pens or colored pencils to draw a line between the two rows of circles.
There are two rows of circles, each with a box at the end. Tick the box which has more circles in the row.
Encourage your child to color the circles - this will help to develop concentration, pencil control and eye-hand co-ordination.
In this task, your child needs to add on and type the right answer into the box on the right. For example: there are three flowers, then "add 1 more" which makes 4.
Introduce the number line for your child to count on, starting at the number 3 - 1 jump landing on 4, the answer is 4. This way your child will learn to start from the existing number instead of going back to number 1, which children do very often. Don't forget to praise your child all the way!
Print this preschool math worksheet out. Use a colored felt-tip pen or pencil to draw one more bow on the page for each question. Count how many bows there are altogether and write the correct answer in the box. Color all the bows.
Encourage your child to use the number line at the bottom of the printable worksheet to reach the answer.
In this task the objects are replaced by numbers. Children can use counters, fingers or other small objects until they are confident to try without help. Also, remember to use the number line. Read the sum out aloud, for example, "three add one more makes".
Use similar examples in your day to day life with your child: when handing out toys, fruits, biscuits, etc - without practical application your child will see mathematical additions as pointless tasks.
