A Favorite Addition Story

I recently posted an activity for How Many Snails? and included a ppt adaptation  How Many Bugs? It's a great book to use when introducing many concepts: sorting, counting, addition.... Another favorite is Splash by Ann Jonas. It's a fabulous introduction to addition. I am including story props you can download. I copied them and used them on the magnetic board. The students used dry erase boards to solve the problems introduced in the book.
