To prep the activity, I printed the cards on cardstock, cut along the grey lines to separate the pieces and laminated them to make them reusable.
Then, I grabbed a Vis-a-Vis marker and baby wipe (for easy clean up), and printed the record sheet on regular copy paper.
That’s it! The prep was easy peasy.
Robot Addition Cards
Middle Brother (age 5) was eager to jump in and get started so he grabbed the top card in the stack and I walked him through the steps.
First, he counted the number of orange hex nuts on the left side of the card and wrote the addend in the circle below it.
Then, he counted the number of pink hex nuts next to it and wrote that addend in the second circle.
He added the two numbers together and viola! He wrote the sum.
After working through the first problem together, he was ready to take off on his own. One card after the next, he wrote and solved each addition problem.
And when he was through, we took the learning one step further by writing the entire equation – symbols and all! – on the record sheet.
