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, I’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
