## Addition Facts: Double Dice Worksheet

Are you looking for ways to stimulate your kids’ minds more with maths? The problem is that mathematics can be such a bore sometimes. In fact, children and adults alike dread the subject. However, if you start teaching your little ones from a young age that mathematics can be fun, they would eventually have no problems with the subject. This worksheet exercise requires that your child identifies the number on the dice on the left, and finds its double on the right. The sum of the two identical dice is also displayed.
Math is meaningful when it involves different solution strategies. This free worksheet uses engaging Arctic animal images to offer one-to-one representation for your child to solve basic subtraction word problems. They'll read the problem and then use the colorful pictures of the Arctic animals to decide which drawing represents the correct solution. They'll have so much fun with their new frosty friends, they won't even know they're practicing math!
Learning and committing doubles facts to memory is a skill that makes math computation easy and efficient. It also helps with adding and subtracting larger numbers. Kids will love this brightly colored and animated worksheet, as it will help them learn how to use doubles facts to answer basic addition problems with three addends. They'll see how quickly they can compute when they put the power of doubles to work!
Analyzing relationships between numbers and identifying patterns in math is essential for students to gain a solid number sense! This delightful printable worksheet uses adorable robot illustrations to motivate kids as they find the rule or pattern contained within each function machine on the page. While working, kids will look at the function machine and determine the rule, using that number to solve for the missing number in each graph.
Making a 'ten' is a strategy we all use in regular computation, but as adults, we're so automatic in our process we may not even realize that's what we do. This bright and colorful PDF worksheet will let your student see how easy it can be to add three numbers when they first make a ten for more efficient and quicker computation. They'll be delighted by the monsters and will gain practice with fine motor skills as they check off each correct answer box.
Here, your child/student is encouraged to flex their mental muscles a bit more. Rather than a regular addition and subtraction exercise, this math worksheet encourages your child to be more observant. Sit with the young one and examine the dominos on the left side and their values. Next, look through the three boxes on the right side and ask your child if any of the dominos are similar to the one on the left. This exercise will require some focus and careful observation.
Colorful robots are here to help your child find the relationships between each set of numbers! This adorably illustrated worksheet uses vivid pictures that each contain a rule. Look carefully at each function machine and determine the pattern or relationship found between each pair of numbers in the input and output columns. Then, complete the sheet by circling the robot that contains the correct answer!
This fun bear worksheet is the perfect way to quickly see how well your child can answer basic subtraction word problems. They'll be able to use one-to-one picture representation to help, as they read the word problem and then check off the correct drawing that matches. They won't even know you're checking their skills; they'll just think they're counting adorable sleeping bears!
