I have a fun new Kindergarten Addition Activity for you today, and it takes no prep time. If you have two simple tools in your classroom, you have an instant math center that the kids will love.
The best educational tools, toys, and games are the ones that can be used over and over again for different activities. Dominoes are something we use often for all kinds of math fun. We also love Snap cubes, and use them in a number of our activities.
This Kindergarten Addition activity uses both. It teaches subitizing, counting and addition all in one little fun interactive game. This kindergarten math activity would be great to do in a math center or during free time. It can be easily stored in a bin and brought back out at a moments notice.

Kindergarten Addition Activity
To do this activity, you will need:
Our favorite Colored Dot Dominoes
Snap Cubes with coordinating colors.
To do the activity, have the children pull a domino out of the pile. Matching up the colors, they must pull a Snap cube for each dot on the domino. When they have the correct number of each color, they can stack the two pieces together. Then count and add.
If you want the children to record their answers, you could easily do that on a lined sheet of paper. Have them write out each addition sentence as they complete it. It will be fun to see how many different kinds of combinations they can find.
This activity is very visual, and require the children to count multiple times before actually adding the numbers together. It’s fantastic practice, but the colors and hands on aspect of it make it enjoyable.
