Teaching Number Bonds
My normal method to teaching anything related to addition or subtraction is using counters. Physical objects definitely make comprehending the facts much easier. Anything such bear counters, snap cubes, or even buttons will do. Using two differently coloured buttons is likely to make things clearer, so leaners can visually see the two parts becoming a whole.
This set of number bonds covers number bonds until 20. If you would like a differentiated set of number bonds be sure to check this set below.
Spring Math Centers
This set is spring themed, which matches most of the new math centers that I have recently created. I plan on releasing quite a few spring related math centers between PreK to 3rd grade, so do check back for new printables.

Leaf Number Bond Task Cards
I love teaching maths using task cards as opposed to worksheets because they just seem less daunting and normally are straightforward to solve. Task cards are ideal for students who don’t like being overwhelmed with numbers and like to go through questions one by one instead of having to deal with looking at multiple questions on the same page.

Ideas for Using The Printable:
If your leaners need help solving the number bonds, provide them with physical pieces to allow them to solve using that.
Ask them what other ways the number can be formed using two parts. For e.g. 5 can be 1+4 or 2+3.
Get your learners to write down the equation for the number bond they just solved. This can be done as an extension to this activity.
