# Adding with 1's - Lesson for Kindergarten, Chapter - Fluency

In the "Adding with 1's" lesson, students in Kindergarten will embark on an engaging journey to enhance their fluency in mathematics through the Counting and Cardinality unit, focusing on numbers up to 20. This lesson is a fundamental building block in the mathematical foundation, emphasising the critical skill of adding one to a given number. Students will engage in three hands-on activities: a "Police: Plus 1 Worksheet," where they assist the police by adding one to catch the correct number of speeding cars; a "Nest of Eggs Worksheet," which involves counting and adding one more egg to various nests to help mother birds; and a "Library Book Math Worksheet," where students help librarians keep track of new books by adding one more to the existing count.

Understanding the concept of adding with ones is crucial for young learners as it lays the groundwork for all future arithmetic operations. This skill aids in the development of number sense, an essential component for problem-solving and logical thinking. By engaging in these practical and relatable activities, students not only learn mathematical concepts but also understand their application in everyday situations, making the learning process both enjoyable and meaningful.

• ### Activity 1 / Police: Plus 1 Worksheet

Policemen are very important in the community. Ask your kids to tell you some of the things that policemen do, and how they contribute to the community. Now, look at this worksheet with your kids. The aim of the simple exercise is to help your kids get better at counting, and also improve their addition skills. On the left side of the printout, help your kids count the policemen, and then circle the number that completes the number sentence on the right side.

• ### Activity 2 / Nest of Eggs Worksheet

For your kids to learn math properly, and know how to add numbers, you must help them as much as you can. Sure, their teachers take them through exercises and simple equations in school, but you can give them some more help with this colorful worksheet. First, look at the picture with your kids. Can they tell you what they see? There are three equations which they must solve. Help them solve the simple equations and then trace a line to the correct answer.

• ### Activity 3 / Library Book Math Worksheet

Learning how to count and properly add is essential for your child’s growth and knowledge building. It is your job to help them get better at these by giving them simple tasks and encouraging them. This worksheet will be a handy tool for you to utilize in helping your kids learn math. First, get your kids ready to solve the simple equations by asking them to name the objects in the picture. Then, help them circle the groups of books that show 1+3
