### Avoid math anxiety and Gain early math confidence

It is of vital importance that we continue to enhance the idea of number sense in kinders. With an innate idea already of what numbers mean, kids can fill anxious. As they engage in our inspirational free addition worksheets for kinders, they will avoid math anxiety and gain early math confidence.

One way of gaining kids love and confidence in our addition up to 5 activities is by formulating simple exercises with models, so that they can easily understand the basic technique of addition.

One of such basic techniques is representing the number of addends with visual objects. This will greatly help kids to easily add up by counting all the objects together, then obtain the correct answer.

Also, another technique used in our addition up to 5 worksheets is by formulating an addition sentence with one missing addend.

### Example: in each case, fill in the missing numbers

Addition - extremely simple – all about counting, counting and counting numbers or objects. Hey, let’s take a look at this one.

in each case, fill in the missing numbers.

Ok. Let’s first of all take a look at the sentence. Hmmm! Only the sum and one addend is available in the addition sentence. One addend is missing, so the following guides will help us fill in that missing number.

1. Firstly, we move straight to the sum, and represent its number with objects.

The sum number is 5, so let’s go    →

1. Secondly, given that the number of the one present addend is 2, we move over to our 5 objects, then count and cross out 2 objects from there. Let’s go  →

1. Good! We can now count the remaining objects that have not been crossed out. The uncrossed objects will become our missing addend. Let’s count →

1. Finally, having in mind that our last counted number names the number of all the objects, then there are 3 objects. Therefore, our missing addend or number is 3
2. We can now fill in our missing number: 3
3. So we have, 3 + 2 = 5

Wow! This is so wonderful. It’s very easy.
