Kindergarten Math: Addition at the Fridge

  This has been my son's favorite kindergarten activity so far.   I think this particular method works well for us because it uses manipulatives, and requires little writing.  

We use clothespins with magnets attached to post flash cards on the refrigerator.  He answers the equation by placing the correct number magnet at the bottom of the equation.  If he knows the answer from memory, he can skip to checking his work.


  1. Great ideas, Christy! I love the flashcard on the fridge. We will have to try that.

  2. Thanks! Let me know how it goes. I'm always curious how the same activity works out for different kids.
