One of our favorite activities to work on math skills is using homemade number cards, a dollar store divided container, and Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers. It’s amazing what a little extra effort on my part can be to their learning process. I buy colorful card stock and cut it to fit into the divided containers. Then I write numbers one to twenty on each card (you could always go higher!) along with a plus and a minus sign. I place two different numbers into the first two compartments with either the plus or the minus sign placed underneath. Then my kids can use Goldfish crackers to count the number on each card.Depending on if it’s an addition or subtraction problem, they either add up the total number of crackers or subtract the two numbers to find the total. They can then find the card with that number on it and place it inside the final compartment. Then they get to count the number of Goldfish crackers that match the card! Once we go over how we came to that answer they get to do their favorite part of this whole activity: eating the Goldfish crackers!!! I mean, seriously, what child wouldn’t love this math activity, smiles to be had everywhere! I love when they can be happy learning.
