A simple addition maths game for Grade R/1 level. Using the spots provided, place the relevant number on each side of the ladybird. 

You will need:

Printed template
Plastic Card holders
Board File Folder
Self Adhesive Plastic
2 Goggly eyes
Double Sided Tape

I printed out the template and laminated everything to help them keep longer. I used a board file folder and covered this in self adhesive plastic. The ladybird is then placed on the front cover toward the top of the folder. At the bottom, you will need to place the templates first and the plastic card holders. These will be used to store the spots and the card that is in use.

On the inside you will need to stick down the plastic card holders (so that they flap up as this makes it easier to get the cards out). This is where you will store the cards. I have included subtraction cards simply to create an all round maths game, although the Ladybird concept does not work with subtraction. The template will print 12 addition and 12 subtraction cards.

Use a card from the inside of the file and place it in the holder on the front. Use the spots to represent each number on each side of the ladybird. Download template below.

Hi. What a great site! For moms with tablets at home, check out www.studyapps.co.za. A great app (Android & iOS) which gives fun practice for learners from Garde 1-7 with Maths, English, NS and Afrikaans (2nd language). It is CAPS aligned and contains loads of reference material.
This will help to enhance the home schooled kids' learning experience!
