Overall rating 4 out of 54.7 (6 ratings)

Just a simple way to work with a small group on addition. PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEW! Thanks x 2 sweet jars and sweets put a various amount of sweets in each jar and get the little'uns to add them together. Easily edited so you can add more sweets if you want. Tip: Laminate them and use the blu More…e tack to move the sweets between jars. I usually get the whiteboards out so they can write down the answer by themselves and then show it to the rest of the group. Also good for doing 'sharing'.
