$1 Math Center Spotlight: Teddy Bear Snuggles

Teddy bears + a hands-on math activity = a recipe for success in first grade! Teddy Bear Snuggles is an addition strategy center that will help your students practice adding 3 numbers.

Directions: Choose a number card for each kid to show how many numbers he or she brought to the sleepover! Add the three numbers by placing the teddy bear counters on the 10-frames. Write your answers on the record sheet!

This printable math center includes the following materials:

  • 10-frame mat
  • Number cards for 0-6
  • Teddy bear counters
  • “Directions” page, storage label, and 2 record sheets
  • Color & black-and-white versions to help you save on ink!

How to use this in your classroom:

  1. Assign as an individual, partner, or small-group center!
  2. Engage your students during targeted, small-group instruction!
  3. Invite students to use when they finish other assignments early!
  4. Prep your sub plans with ease- called away to a meeting? Unexpected sick day? Your students will love playing this math game individually, in partners/groups, or teacher vs. student on a document camera!
  5. Fill extra time at the end of a lesson with a meaningful, standards-based activity!
  6. Print black & white copies to send home with your struggling students for extra practice!
