Here is a fun, differentiated addition math center activity that is tiered by readiness for your students. And appeals to your kinesthetic learners that need to move.
There are three tiers to this activity. Tier I addresses the needs of your students who are just beginning to add (1-5), tier II addresses students who have progressed and need a bit more of a challenge to (1-10) and tier III is for those students who are working well beyond the standards for addition in kindergarten but who still need to be challenged and engaged. You will print off the all materials, laminate and cut out only the addition cards. Place the cards throughout the room for students to discover during their write the room activity. Students will use the ‘write the room’ sheet to record addition cards they find with corresponding characters found on their sheet. They will then use the number line (or other manipulatives provided by the teacher, jellybeans, seasonal erasers, etc) to complete the problem and record the answer.
