Interactive Math Lesson - Missing Numbers to Five Addition

Your kindergarten students will become addition experts when they practice missing numbers to five in this interactive math lesson! Students will determine the missing number to complete the addition math fact. Questions are presented in a variety of formats in this kindergarten math game. Students may have to fill in the blank, answer a multiple-choice question, or drag and drop the correct answer to complete the math fact. Upon completion of this basic addition lesson, your students will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic addition skills to five.

Students will be engaged and challenged by the kindergarten-level addition problems in this interactive math activity. Students may be instructed to "Choose the missing number: [Answer] = 1 + 1." To aid them in answering the question, a custom graphic is shown—in the previous example, two flowers are displayed. Students may be shown place value blocks, dots, ponies, kittens, and other objects to help them visualize the addition fact. If students get stuck on a question, they can click the "Hint" button and they will be shown a relevant pictorial clue that will further help them choose the correct answer. When students get a question wrong, a detailed explanation page will show them the right answer along with step-by-step instructions for how to obtain it. In this way, students progress through the math lesson having learned from previous mistakes.

This kindergarten addition activity, as well as all math practice activities on iKnowIt.com, features several handy tools that help students make the most of their math practice session. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the lesson. A score-tracker beneath that lets students know how many points they have earned so far in the lesson. In the upper-left corner of the practice screen, a speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click this button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This is a great resource for ESL/ELL students and students who excel at auditory learning.
