Try this What’s in my tray? activity to support simple addition with Numicon.

What to do:

  • Split the tray into three columns- use masking tape.
  • Draw out the mathematical symbols on the card and cut out.
  • Fill in the first two digits with the numicon pieces.
  • Let your child find the answer by using the numicon pieces they have in front of them.

Challenge– Leave a space for a missing number and see if your child can solve the addition calculation.
