Got Addition Games for Children? How about some fun Magic Addition Circles. The kiddos will enjoy this addition activity and build their addition and logical thinking skills at the same time!
See the magic circle to the right. The three
numbers on each straight line add up to the same sum - 10. Pretty Cool huh!
Why Use Magic Circles
Make up your own. Then let your students figure out the missing numbers. You know what level your students are at, right - so you can create the magic circles to cater to what each student needs.
Let students make up their own. What I've found that really works well with kids is when they take part in making up problems or puzzles themselves. It helps their thinking process.
Magic circles can be as easy or as difficult as you need. Check this one on the left out - Each straight line adds up to 38.
I've created some blank magic circles for you to print so your kids can try their hand at it.
I'm going to add some more magic circle ideas for addition in next couple of days, so come on back!
