Interactive notebooks are super popular in classrooms these days, and it’s because they engage kids’ full attention. This interactive addition activity is constructed so there are lots of math addition questions on just one interactive page.
The academic and fine motor skill level is aimed at first graders, however, kinders can also use it with guidance. For unlimited access to all of our math and literacy centers, STEM challenges and digital games including exclusive downloads, join our Plato Pack Membership!
To prep the interactive notebook, simply print off the Interactive Addition printable (BELOW).
To brighten it up, print each page on different colored paper.
Decide whether you want your child to construct the interactive page first, or if you will give them one activity at a time so they can add to the interactive addition page gradually.
I prefer the second option as it’s a large project with many steps for little ones to do in one sitting.
Interactive Notebook – Addition to 20
Have children write their names on the interactive addition sheet. The shapes and label will show them exactly where to glue each activity so they fit nicely on the page. Below are the steps to completing the interactive notebook.
Addition to 20
Cut out a rectangle around the far right concertina strip to separate it from the page. Cut across the top line and bottom line. Fold carefully on all horizontal lines and crease them well. Fold it into a concertina so only one shape shows at the top, then cut the side edges. Complete the equations. Add glue to the back of the top equation (11+6) and attach it to the interactive sheet where it says “addition to 20.”
Addition to 10
Complete the next concertina strip as above!
True or False
Cut out around all outside edges, then fold on the dotted lines. Add glue to the center shape and attach to the interactive sheet where it says “true or false.” Fold the “petals” closed. Look at each equation and decide whether it’s true or false. Circle T for true and F for false. Open the petals and rewrite the false equations correctly in the center shape.
Adding 3 Together
Cut out around the rectangle with the 2 pencils on it. Flip it over and add glue to the 3 edges that are indicated by the dotted lines. Attach it to the interactive sheet where it says ‘”adding 3 together” to form a pocket. Cut out the 6 pencils. Complete the equations and store them in the pocket.
Cut out the larger solid lines of page 4 to create 4 different sized rectangles. Glue the largest rectangle to the interactive sheet where it says “picture addition.” Fold the other 3 rectangles on the dotted lines, add glue on the back just at the top and attach them on top of the page you’ve already glued with the smallest size on top. Complete the equations.
Complete them the same way you’ve done the picture addition activity.
This addition interactive notebook covers so many skills on just one page!
