# Kindergarten Addition Worksheets ### Addition Worksheets for Kindergarten

Students use their counting skills to add. They count the number of objects in two groups to find the total. They gradually learn to add numbers with a sum up to 5 without using objects to help them.

Addition is an extension of counting. Students count the number of objects in one group and then count on as they touch objects in a second group. Adding real objects helps reinforce this skill, so make a game of count everyday objects. Keep a collection of small objects, such as buttons or pennies or dry beans, that are easy to pick up and count. Make two small piles (no more than 10 in each pile) and have students add. Start with only 1-3 objects in the second pile and gradually increase the number.

#### Add with Words

Students are asked in words to find how many there are in all. Students can choose to use objects, fingers, or drawings to help them add. (4 printable worksheets)

#### Adding Number Pairs

With these number pair worksheets, students use objects or drawings to add pairs of numbers with a sum less than or equal to 10. To support student learning, have them find the total of two sets of objects they regularly use, such as two sets of forks or two groups of toys.

To start, the worksheets focus on number pairs for 1 or 2 numbers. To help get students ready for finding sums without using objects or pictures, talk with students about the different pairs of numbers that have the same sum. For example, 2 + 3 and 4 + 1 are both equal to 5. Eventually, students will complete a set of worksheets that have a variety of sums from 5 to 10.

#### Decompose Numbers

In these worksheets, students find pairs of numbers that have the same sum. They can use objects or drawings to help them. Objects can be rearranged into two groups in several ways to find number pairs. When using pictures, students can cover up some, count those showing, and then count what they have covered to find a number pair.
