Addition to 20


Category: Tags: , ,


This resource is aimed at junior/middle pupils or SEN pupils moving on from early work on numeracy. It is based on the addition of three numbers up to 20.

Cut up the pages into sixteen cards and laminate all of them individually. Pupils should add the three numbers that the boy is holding on the left side of each card and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right side of the card. Concrete materials or a number line could be used if needed.

This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write numbers but can count. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of addition. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.

We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.

When the pupil was comfortable completing this task, it was often used as an Independent task completed by SEN pupils in their work station.
