Sunflower Seed Math: Adding

We have a little garden outside our class (in no way am I in-charge of this garden, I have a blue thumb...) and we have been growing sunflowers!  They grew so tall and their time was coming to an end, so the centers of them were turning into seeds!  Our class was so excited to pick the sunflower seeds, so I took them outside in small groups and they could pull out the seeds for a couple of about HANDS ON!

We pulled out so many and I let them dry over night.  We just started our addition unit in math, so I thought it would be perfect to use them as a manipulative for adding!  I made a worksheet and they placed the seeds on the sheet to make an addition sentence.  Then they moved the seeds and drew circles to represent the same amount.

We all had a great time  using our addition worksheet in Kindergarten!  And the best part....picking the SEEDS!  If you would like a free download of this worksheet, visit my TPT store {HERE}.
