This first simple addition color by number printable features an adorable puppy!
Help your student prepare for the activity by pulling out the different colors in the color key. Have the student color each crayon shape in the key with the appropriate color.
Read the directions at the top of the page and make sure the child knows what to do.
It is important that the child understands they should write their answers in pencil first, have you check the answers, THEN start coloring.
This will prevent any frustration over mistakes.
Coloring this cute turtle is such a fun way to work on addition with single digit numbers!
Remember to pull out the right color crayons/pencils for your student.
This especially helps if your student is prone to distraction and decides they want to follow their own color ideas.
Normally that’s fine in art, but in this case, it would make it hard to see how well they know their facts.
This adorable crocodile definitely makes for a fun addition practice activity for your first grade students!
If you’re concerned about your student making mistakes or getting distracted with the activity, consider using erasable colored pencils.
I personally love using them with my own kids, and I love how easy they make it to erase color.
If your student grabs the wrong color, writes the wrong number, or goes outside the lines, it will be an easy fix.
Who-who-who can figure out this printable color by number sheet?
I know that many other addition coloring pages have a pattern that kids can easily predict. My own kids have been able to easily crack similar activities – without actually doing the math work!
These pages have a unique design though, so tell your kids not to assume before they color.
For example, the talons of the owl are not all the same color. Do the facts one by one to make sure you have the right color.
This math worksheet is the last of the basic addition skills – 1-10.
It features a rocket ship shooting off into space with planets, stars, the moon, and the sun all around it.

This bird is the first of the addition worksheets with facts going up to 20.
Second grade students and other older kids will enjoy the challenge.
For an extra activity, consider creating answer keys so that the child can grade themselves.
Kids really appreciate and learn so much when able to check their work and make appropriate changes.
I think this fun color by number sheet is a great activity to do with a sweet treat!
Motivate your child with a scone, muffin, or small slice of cake when they finish coloring in their proper English tea cup.
That will definitely make for a memorable math lesson!
