The Addition Machine

After seeing this game on Pinterest we were inspired to try it ourselves. In this exercise the children are able to visually see what is happening when we add numbers.


This really helped the children to grasp the concept of adding. They took turns to count cubes into the funnels.


Once they had collected all the cubes they counted up the contents.


The children loved it. Don’t forget to reinforce the sum by discussing what they did and by showing them the sum with the + sign.
