Addition Turtle


Create an Addition Turtle to promote writing, cutting, bilateral hand use, and pincer grasp.

Draw 2-inch squiggly squares on the back of the paper plate.

Write sums that would equal either 10 or 5 in the boxes. Alternate the sums to create a pattern.

Gently color over the squares using green and yellow. Be sure to assign 5 the color yellow and 10 the color green or, vice versa.

Using a green construction paper, cut out the turtle’s head shape, 4 legs, and a tail.

Glue the turtles, head, legs, and tail onto the opposite side of the plate and glue on the eyes.
