Learning to Add Using Objects and Numerals (Printable PDFs)

Learning to add things like toys or apples helps kindergarten kids understand what numbers mean in real life.

The worksheets below allow kids to practice adding objects and will then move on to adding actual numerals.

Kindergarten Addition - Make 5 through 10 (Printable PDFs)

Using pictures helps addition make sense, especially for kindergarteners. In these worksheets we’ll show your child how to add numbers up to 10 using objects they know and love. Then, they’ll have a chance to show off their math and art skills by drawing their own addition pictures!

Kindergarten Addition with Number Lines

Number lines allow us to visually represent the order of numbers and how they relate to each other, making addition concepts clearer. This approach helps kids grasp the idea of adding numbers sequentially. Have them find the first number on the number line and put their pencil there. Then, hop like a bunny the second number of spaces to the right to find the answer!
