Buzzing Around the Room Learning Addition & Subtraction – Summer Share & Prepare

Today I am joining Once Upon A Classroom’s Summer Share Linky Party.

I am sharing my Buzzing Around the Room Learning Addition & Subtraction activity for pre-k – kindergarten.  Anyone who has taught preschool or kindergarten knows that the students love to be engaged and active; therefore, around the room activities are always a big hit.  There is also the need for differentiation.  I created this product for my kindergartners and they enjoyed “buzzing” around to each card.  Sometimes it was used with small groups, sometimes it was used as a center activity with Honeycomb cereal as a manipulative (which was a HUGE hit of course lol), it was also sent home for extra practice.

Buzzing Around the Room Learning Addition & Subtraction (Differentiated)

Spring Bees Addition and Subtraction

Grade Level: Pre-K, Kindergarten
Common Core Standards: K.OA.A.1, K.OA.A.5, K.CC.B.4,K.CC.B.5

Your students will be all abuzz about addition and subtraction with this bee themed around the room activity and learning center. Differentiated options are provided for addition to 5, addition to 10, subtraction to 5, and subtraction to 10. You also receive pages that can be customized to your students’ needs.

A great activity to get students up and moving to help with end of the school year restlessness.

Various options are provided for each activity as well as pages that can be edited to allow for differentiated instruction.

Addition can be practiced several ways:

Hang the bees in the hive cards around the room which show a visual representation of addition problems. Students visit each card, count and add the bees, and write the addition equation in the appropriate space on their worksheet.

Addition Around the Room Kindergarten

Hang the bee holding a sign cards around the room which show addition equations, for example 4 + 2. Students visit each card and color honeycombs on their worksheets to assist them in solving and writing the addition equation. If you have students who do not need objects to solve addition problems, they can use an alternate worksheet to write and solve the addition equation without having to color honeycombs.

Subtraction can also be practiced several ways:

Hang the bee holding a sign cards around the room which show subtraction equations, for example 7 -5. Students visit each card and cross out the correct number of honeycombs on their worksheets to assist them in solving and writing the subtraction equation.

Center Activity:

Each of the above options can be made into a learning center by placing the cards and worksheets in a folder or container and allowing students to choose cards. A decorative bag to hold the cards can be made by painting a piece of bubble wrap yellow and pressing it onto a brown paper bag to resemble a hive or honeycomb.

Another option is to provide pieces of Honeycomb cereal for the students to use as counters.
