What Skills Can Your Little Ones Learn And Develop?

This minibeast adding worksheet is designed to help your children practice and develop some early skills, such as:

  • One to one correspondence – this important skill (trickier than you may think) is the ability to only touch and count an object of a set once.
  • Number formation – understanding what the numbers look like and how to form them
  • Adding – adding two amounts together to find the total
  • Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
  • Hand and finger strength – the ability to be able to apply enough pressure to make marks on the page and hold the pencil firmly
  • Hand dominance – developing and strengthening the skill of one of their hands
  • Pencil control – holding the pencil correctly to allow for a fluid range of movement

Some of these are vital fine motor skills that will enable them to become great writers in the future!

That’s pretty much it for this one – just print them off, grab some pencils, pens or crayons and they’re good to go! Their goal is to carefully count the spots, add them together to find the total and write the correct amounts in the boxes.

They could do this by counting each side first, saying each number as they do, then count all of them to find the total.

Saying a nice number sentence here can be a great way to verbally consolidate their learning.

For example,

  • (count one side of the equation) “There’s 4 spots here, add”,
  • (count the other side) “this 1 sheep”,
  • (then count them all together) “equals 5 spots on the ladybug”.

Remind them to only count each spot once and that the last number they say is the total.

Gently encourage them if they find it a little tricky at first – learning all these new skills takes time!
