Fun with Number Bonds

Hands-on learning is so much more fun than workbook practice.
Can I get an amen?
Our new math curriculum has plenty way too many of those.
So, to break up the monotony we made our own number bonds this week. 

All you need to do is prep 2 blue parts, 1 red whole and 2 black linking strips.
Glue together and ta-da!

We practiced using them for several days.
At first I would call out 2 numbers for them to put in the parts, slide to the whole and count the total.

Then we moved to "ways to make" numbers as I called out a number to put in the whole and they would figure out different ways to make that number.

The last day we practiced writing number sentences with them.

The good thing is I collected them and can break them out again for subtraction!
