Activities & Freebies for Teaching Addition

If you're constantly on the hunt for activities for math groups, centers & independent work, then I have you covered! I'm (slowly) writing blog posts for different math concepts so you can find low-prep ideas & freebies in one spot!

I use a variety of activities during math small groups, including worksheets, hands-on centers and digital activities. Check out a variety of addition activities:

Centers & Hands-On Tasks:
My students love these gumball & apple tree addition activities. We use them during centers and direct instruction. You can grab them from my addition within 10 unit here.



One of the easiest ways to make math activities is with materials you already have (like mini-erasers, counters, dice, and games), markers and cardstock!








I love these addition work boxes because they include a variety of graphic organizers and are perfect for centers or independent work. You can grab these in the math folder of my free in my free resource library.** (see below)

You can use any manipulatives you have with these addition graphic organizers. These can be found in the math folder of my free in my free resource library.** 

These math using workbooks are great for independent work to reinforce strategies taught during small groups/ direct instruction. You can grab my addition work books here (includes digital version too)

I used these monthly themed addition centers every month- they're awesome because I can switch out the counters/ picture cards to keep things from getting boring for students but also give students the consistent practice with addition. 

Digital Materials:
I'm still using a variety of digital activities. I use a few websites like Brainzy/ Education and MobyMax for math games & materials (not sponsored, just what I love!) and I also assign activities to my students through Google Slides (our district assigns Google accounts to all students). 

You can grab these differentiated addition books (they're digital & printable!) here.


This pack has a variety of math activities, including addition! You can grab it for free here!

I also have a variety of digital addition activities here. You can grab the digital materials separately or as an entire addition unit (centers, worksheets and digital materials)!

You can grab these printable & digital single digit addition activities here
