Are you ready to add a touch of creativity to your math lessons? Dive into the world of addition with our exciting free resource: "Adding Using Fingers" craft activity! Designed for foundation and grade 1 students, this hands-on activity transforms learning addition into a fun and interactive experience that engages young learners and reinforces essential math skills.

Hands-On Addition Exploration

"Adding Using Fingers" invites students to explore addition in a tactile and visual way, using their own hands to solve addition problems. Here's how it works:

  • Craft Setup: Students begin by cutting out handprints, either by tracing their own hands or using the handprints provided in the download. They then glue the handprints onto the worksheet, ensuring to only apply glue to the palms of the handprints to allow the fingers to remain movable.

  • Addition Practice: Once the handprints are in place,

students tackle addition questions at the bottom of the page. For example, if the question is 3 + 4, students arrange the fingers on one handprint to represent 3 fingers up and another handprint to represent 4 fingers up. By counting the fingers, students discover that 3 + 4 equals 7.
