Do you know what it means to "add" two numbers together? Let's find out and have fun doing it!

When you add, you put two numbers together.

When both of the numbers are added (combined), the number you end up with is the answer to your problem. This lesson is all about adding. Adding can help you figure out what two groups of objects or two numbers add up to when they are combined.

You know how to count from one to ten. Before you start learning to add, tell your parent or teacher how many blocks are shown below:

4 legos

Did you say there were four blocks in the picture?

Great! What happens if we add more blocks to the picture? Count to see how many blocks there are now. Tell your parent or teacher your answer:

8 legos

Did you count to eight?

Fantastic! There are eight blocks in all. You just added! You started with four blocks, then you added four more!

You are just starting to learn to add, so you will only focus on counting all the objects together. Count the chips below and share your answer with your parent or teacher:

Did you say there are three chips?

Great job! You counted three chips. What would happen if you added more chips? How many chips are below?

Did you count four chips in all?

Great! Now you will count all the chips together below. This is called adding.

How many chips did you count altogether?

That's right! There are seven chips. You added four more chips to the three chips you already had. Now you have seven chips.

Before moving on to the next section, tell your parent or teacher how many balloons there are all together below:
