It is almost that time of year again. The time of year when the sun starts warming the cold ground. Trees and flowers begin to bloom, and the world of nature emerges around us.

It is finally time to venture outside and enjoy the beauty. And today, I have a fun **spring activity** to get children working on missing addends.

**Prep-Work**

There are two different ways you can do this activity. The first is the easy, no-messy way.

- First, print off the cards on card stock paper and cut them out.
- You can laminate them for extra durability.
- Finally, gather up some clothes pins, and markers and you are ready to go!

But we can add some fine motor skills to this activity. Instead of providing markers, use a hole punch and yellow paper to make lots of yellow dots.

(See the messy part. If your kiddos are anything like mine, those dots will end up on the floor.)

Then grab some glue sticks or squeezable glue for an extra hand-strengthening exercise.

## Missing Addends

Now comes the learning. Each clip card has a picture of a butterfly with dots on it. Under the picture is a number sentence with a missing addend. And we want our little ones to figure out that missing addend. And it is quite simple.

The first number in the number sentence is how many dots are already on the butterfly. Then we have the missing addend, and finally what the number sentence equals. That sum is very important.

That tells us our next step. We want to add dots to the butterfly until we have the same amount of dots as the sum. With this card, there are two dots already on the butterfly, and we want to get to four.

So I add two dots with my marker. The number of dots I added is the missing addend.

2 + 2 = 4

Now, Iâ€™ll try this one using my glue and precut holes. I started with five dots, but I need to get to seven. I can count while I add dots. Six! Seven! I glued on two dots, so that is my missing addend.

5 + 2 = 7

This hands-on approach is a great way for children to practice skills like counting and taking the beginning steps to understand algebra.
