### Easter Egg Addition - Developing Math Fluency

Here's a fun Math Activity that helps children develop fluency with math facts.

All you need is some inexpensive plastic eggs and a permanent marker.

On one half of a plastic egg you need to write the ADDENDS in a number sentence and on the other half of the egg you complete the Number Sentence with the SUM (answer).

Next separate the 2 parts of the plastic eggs, mix them up, and have the kids put them back together making the accurate Number Sentences.

 ADDENDS and SUMS

This set uses Addition Doubles but you could include any facts that your students need to practice to develop math fluency. It also works with any of the other OPERATIONS (subtraction, multiplication and division).

Lots of the plastic eggs are on sale after Easter!

Have fun with math!
